Retina Care Specialists focus in diseases and surgery of
the retina, vitreous, and macula for patients in their
Gardens and Stuart offices.
Three areas of critical care include diabetic
retinopathy, detached and torn retina, and macular degeneration.
Ophthalmoscopy is the detailed and complete visual examination of the retina and vitreous by the ophthalmologist. We use a slit-lamp biomicroscope, where a focused beam of light is used to evauate the macula with magnification. Indirect ophthalmoscopy is where a hand-held lens is used to direct light from a headlight worn by the doctor. The light is directed onto the retina and allows the doctor to see a panoramic view of the entire retina, including the retinal periphery.
