Welcome to the Center for Retinal Diseases and Surgery (CRDS).

We are accepting new patients!


Sudden or progressive vision loss from retinal diseases can have a profound functional and emotional impact on patients and their families.  Treatment requires a delicate balance of expertise, support of a dedicated staff, and a team approach with referring physicians to care for patients and to preserve or restore vision.

The Center for Retinal Diseases and Surgery is committed to a tradition of excellence in providing personalized retinal care in a compassionate setting.  We value the integrity of a candid assessment of a patient’s prognosis, place a premium on patient privacy as mandated by law, and maintain high standards of training, board certification, and ethical conduct expected of physicians and surgeons.  We are privileged to have current technology and employ innovative approaches to diagnose and manage a wide range of medical and surgical retinal diseases.  We apply and customize the most current management guidelines to meet each patient’s unique needs and welcome the opportunity to serve and care for you.
