We offer patients a variety of different locations for their eye surgery in Gaithersburg. These include major hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers where retinal surgeries are performed every day. This is a great way for patients to find a center that’s covered by their insurance. Our locations include centers and hospitals in Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland. Patients may be familiar with Georgetown University Hospital, Virginia Hospital Center, and Silver Spring Ophthalmology Surgery Center. Our retina exam is designed to assess retinal health and prevent the progression of retinal disease. This can help prevent vision loss, blindness and other symptoms that can happen as a side effect of retinal diseases like age related macular degeneration, a disease that can cause central vision loss. Retinal exams can also find melanoma within the eye. If treated early enough, it can help stop the progression of the melanoma before it travels to other parts of the body. High blood pressure often appears during a retinal exam, because it narrows the blood vessels and causes bleeding in the eye.
Our diagnostic services cover everything that’s needed to diagnose, evaluate and treat your retinal conditions. We perform digital fundus photography, b-scan ultrasonography, fluorescein angiography procedures and optical coherence tomography tests. For those who don’t need eye surgery in Gaithersburg, we perform in-office treatments like cryotherapy, laser photocoagulation and steroid injections. Also, ask about our Ozurdex implants as well as Avastin and Macugen therapies.
