The medical and surgical retina service at the WVU Eye Institute offers the latest in diagnostic and treatment care. Our nationally recognized doctors specialize in retinal detachments, diabetic eye disease, macular diseases, vitreous surgery, and much more. Our team works with patients to treat the many different diseases affecting the retina and vitreous of the eye.
We perform more than 700 laser procedures for age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy each year. Our state-of-the-art technology capabilities allow us to provide outstanding results. With the latest technology, we are able to view individual cell layers of the retina and assess the severity of various diseases. We also have tools such as our ultrasound for the eye, which helps us view the retina even if it is obscured, for example after a vitreous hemorrhage. Additionally, our advanced diagnostic tools allow us to assess the severity of various diseases so we can provide effective treatments.
