“Should I Continue Seeing My Primary Eye Doctor?”

Yes, you should. Your primary eye doctor treats you for a number of different conditions which we do not, such as give you prescription for glasses, glaucoma drops, etc.

“How Often Do I Need a Follow-up Retinal Exam?”

This depends on the condition. Some require monthly check up or treatment, such as wet macular degeneration. Once the condition has stabilized then you need to be seen less frequently.

Contact our Opelika and Dothan Offices at (334) 521-0041 or our Columbus Office at (706) 221-9702 for a comprehensive evaluation and management of your retinal needs.

Retina Updates

Macular Hole Repair Prognosis

We reviewed our surgical outcome data to predict the degree of visual acuity improvement based on the pre-operative visual acuity.

Wet Age-related Macular Degeneration

We are developing a new technique based on angiogram studies to assess why some eyes seem to respond more readily to treatment than others. Work is ongoing to provide clinical value to these methods.
