By Aaron Parnes, M.D.

Retinal SurgeryAt Eyecare Medical Group working to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases of the retina is an important part of what our retinal specialists-all fellowship trained Vitreoretinal surgeons-do each and every day. As retinal specialists they examine patients who experience floaters and flashes of light to be sure they are not experiencing retinal tears or retinal detachment.  They also provide advanced diagnostic testing and evaluation for diabetic eye problems including diabetic macular edema and diabetic retinopathy. The EMG Maine Vitreoretinal specialists have been involved in many levels of clinical trials to evaluate the best ways to provide early detection, diagnosis and treatment of macular disease including age related macular degeneration (AMD) with Eylea® and Lucentis® injections as well as treatment of macular hole and pucker with retinal membrane peeling surgery and vitrectomy. Finally, our EMG Maine retina specialists work cooperatively with primary care physicians to understand the causes, make the proper diagnosis and implement the necessary treatment for patients with the full range of retinal vascular disease such as retinal artery occlusion and retinal vein occlusion.
