Juris Medicus has vitreoretinal specialists who are fellowship trained in retinal surgery and certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology.
Vitreoretinal eye surgery refers to a group of advanced, highly delicate procedures that are done deep inside the eye’s interior. Vitreoretinal surgery is performed in the part of your eye where the vitreous and retina are located. The vitreous is a jelly-like substance filling the cavity between the lens of your eye and your retina. The purpose of vitreoretinal surgery is to restore, preserve and improve vision for a wide range of conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, diabetic vitreous hemorrhage, macular hole, and detached retina.
A vitreoretinal specialist is a fellowship trained ophthalmologist who specializes in the diagnosis, evaluation, and medical or surgical treatment of diseases affecting the vitreous gel, macula, or peripheral retina in the back of the eye. These specialists can treat the microscopic complexities of medical and surgical retinal disease.
