our eye care specialties Vitreoretinal Disease

The back part of your eye can experience a variety of diseases and strains, each of which affects your vision and comfort. These include such disorders as macular degeneration, retinal detachments, eye cancer and diabetic retinopathy.

Both the retina (the lining of your eye) and vitreous (the liquid substance inside your eye) are crucial to good vision, and our expert physician, Dr. Famin Chou, specializes in diagnosing and treating these parts of the eye.

Using technologies from simple dilations to retinal imaging, we can help to diagnose and treat conditions that cause blurry vision, distorted vision or even disease.
