Retina & Vitreous Services
Often life's greatest wonders are in the smallest of moments. Together, the retina and vitreous bring the tiniest detail into focus - the seeds of a flower, the handwriting of a loved one, the brilliant colors of a painting. Eye health is essential for such intricate vision.
As the population ages, the number of Americans with retinal and vitreous disorders and vision loss is steadily increasing. Albert Florens Storm Eye Institute at the Medical University of South Carolina strives to offer the latest in technological and surgical advancements for the prevention and treatment of retinal disorders.
Many of the potential disorders of the retina and vitreous can be prevented or fully treated if detected early by a skilled ophthalmologist. Our highly-trained specialists are devoted to the care of the retina and the vitreous, the "back of the eye" components essential to clear vision.
At Storm Eye Institute, we begin our patient relationship with a consultation and thorough eye examination, which may include further testing to allow our doctors to detect diseases at very early stages, and to monitor how diseases improve or progress over time. We continue that relationship by developing a treatment plan that is unique for each patient and providing comprehensive follow-through care for the life of the disorder.
At Storm Eye Institute, our vitreo-retinal specialists use laser surgery, medications, and other state-of-the art treatments and therapies to provide comprehensive, compassionate care for patients dealing with these conditions, as well as retinal detachments or tears, macular holes, retinoblastoma, uveitis, eye cancer, flashes and floaters and retinitis pigmentosa.
Our goal is not only to provide the very best care and treatment, but also to work with our patients to address short-term eye health needs while creating an ongoing patient-doctor relationship that will ensure our patients don't miss out on life's most wonderful moments - even the smallest ones.
