Medical Retina

Medical Retina is a specialized area of ophthalmology that deals with the in-office management and treatment of retinal diseases. This includes age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy, vitreous floaters, retinal vascular disorders, retinal tears, and some types of retinal detachments.

Macula

The retina is the tissue lining the inner surface of the back of the eye. The center part of the retina, called the macula, is essential for one's central vision (e.g. seeing people's faces and sports scores on TV). While disease of the retina can be serious and vision-threatening, recent advances in the field have expanded our ability to effectively treat these problems.

Over the past several years, Greenwich Ophthalmology Associates has emerged as a local leader in the treatment of AMD, diabetic retinopathy, and other retinal disorders. At our center, we have some of the most advanced technology including spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) and Optos ultra-widefield imaging and SPECTRALIS fluorescein angiography. Our fellowship-trained medical retina specialist, Dr. Jerry Tsong, specializes in performing in-office laser procedures and Anti-VEGF injections (e.g. Avastin, Lucentis, and Eylea).
