At The Retina Group of Washington, we specialize in retinal eye exams and perform cutting edge treatments, research and diagnosis of retinal problems. Our practice is one of the largest in the country, and we offer Fellowship programs in order to train those seeking to become ophthalmologists and those seeking to currently fortify their education. We have provided the best eye exam in Stafford and testing for over 30 years, with a practice comprised of a group of highly trained doctors.
All of our locations that provide an eye exam in Stafford evoke the feeling of a warm and old-fashioned doctors office, so that patients feel comfortable and at home. Between all of our doctors, we offer many years of experience and knowledge on retinal diseases. Our doctors are some of the best in the field. Some of our testing includes digital fundus photography, or retinal photography, fluorescein angiographies, high speed indocyanine angiographies and B-scan ultrasonography. Our treatment procedures can help heal a wide range of retinal problems, using therapies such as cryotherapy, laser photocoagulation, steroid injections and more. Our surgeons have access to all major hospitals in the area, where we perform retinal procedures on a regular basis and offer surgeries at convenient locations.
Some of the locations include Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland hospitals. Our eye exam in Stafford is designed to treat diabetic retinopathy, among other retinal diseases. Diabetic retinopathy is the most common diabetic eye disease, and one of the leading causes of blindness in America today. Because it damages the blood vessels in the eye, the retina may begin to swell and leak fluid. Blindness or vision loss may occur. The condition may progress slowly over time and worsen vision loss, affecting both eyes usually. Early detection of the disease can help stop the progression and help vision loss from occurring.
