Talking Macular Degeneration

Dr. Torres gave a great update on emerging treatments for macular degeneration.

Dr Rivero presented what optical options are available for patients with macular degeneration for visual rehabilitation

Dr. Levy gave an update on the implantable miniature telescope. This little device is bringing incredible hope to patients with macular degeneration.

      We appreciate the kind words about our retina doctors. They strive to deliver top notch care. Both Dr. Chen and Torres have knowledge of pseudoxanthoma elasticum. While we do not have any current studies in our clinic, they can help provide some information about some centers that might have a study going on. I would suggest talking with them during your next visit. They will take the time to listen and give advice to try and help.
