At The Retina Group of Washington we treat macular degeneration in a relaxing and professional environment. Our Falls Church ophthalmology office is one of many locations that we have. A retina exam is used to assess retinal health and to help prevent the progression of retinal diseases like AMD, or age related macular degeneration. This disease can cause central vision loss.
Side effects of AMD include vision loss, blindness and blurry vision. Our retina exam Gaithersburg includes digital fundus photography, an optical coherence test, and a fluorescein angiography which allows us to see better inside the eye. A retinal exam at our Falls Church ophthalmology office is often the first to show medical conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes because they affect the blood vessels inside the eye and cause bleeding. Many patients in the Washington, D.C. area have their retinal problems diagnosed and treated at one of our locations, and we partner with hospitals around the area to serve our patients best. Our doctors use safe investigative trials to test out new treatments that look promising and participate in national research studies. These studies often result in FDA approval of current treatments.
As one of the largest and highly respected retinal centers in the U.S., we provide patients with comprehensive care. We teach our patients ways to keep eyes healthy and urge them to take good care of their health, using diet and exercise to help their eyes stay healthy. Our Falls Church ophthalmology office has a small practice feel, just like all of our other offices. Patients feel comfortable and listened to and receive customized care. With over 250 years of collective experience, it’s not hard to see why we are at the forefront of retinal care and treatment today.
