Vitreous syneresison OCTThis is a cross section of the posterior part of the eye, taken with a machine called OCT (optical coherence tomography). The retina layers are nicely displayed in shades of grey. The vitreous, which is the fluid in the back part of the eye, is typically clear and represented as black on an OCT. When the vitreous cells clump together, they can be detected on OCT, and the patient sees “floaters”

If you or someone you know experiences floaters please call your local optometrist to schedule an appointment. If specialty care, treatment or surgery is required, please ask to be referred to one of the physicians at Eyecare Medical Group, 53 Sewall Street, Portland, Maine 04102 at 888-374-2020,  or visit Eyecare Medical GroupGoogle+ or

What Our Patients Are Saying

My experience at EMG was one of the best. The staff was friendly and informative. I felt very comfortable with the entire experience. All my questions were answered and explained.

I have been visiting Dr. Samuel Solish here and I've found the staff attentive, the waiting times were short, and the treatment was first rate. The examinations were thorough and the explanations were easy to understand, and they never hurried me. And as an added bonus, it's near the Portland Transportation Center, so I can travel most of the way via a bus.
