Maintaining the health and safety of our patients, employees, and community is our top priority.  


To ensure social distancing to the best of our ability, we must limit the number of people in the office.  Drivers/family members will be asked to wait in their car.  We are happy to call them when the patient's appointment is completed. 

Patients must meet the following criteria:

  • Follow social distancing policies.
  • Wear a mask (unless unable to for medical reasons).
  • Have had no symptoms or exposure in the last 14 days.
  • Temperature of less than 100.0F.

 Mask Policy:

  • Patients and approved visitors must wear a mask
  • Masks must fully cover the nose and mouth.

Employee Screenings

All of our employees are screened before they are allowed to enter work each day.  This includes employees, providers, and vendors.

Retinopathy is caused by changes in the blood vessels of the retina—the thin, light-sensitive inner lining in the back of your eye.

Diabetic retinopathy is a common complication of diabetes and the leading cause of new-onset blindness in American adults.

Effective treatments are available to preserve vision for eyes at risk of vision loss from diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic Retinopathy:

01 How the Eye Sees


02 NPDR – Nonproliferative Diabetic Retinopathy

The first stage is called non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR) There are no symptoms, it is not visible to the naked eye and patients will have 20/20 vision. The only way to detect NPDR is by fundus photography, in which microaneurysms (microscopic blood-filled bulges in the artery walls) can be seen.;


03 Macular Edema-Ischemia

Macular edema is swelling or thickening of the macula, a small area in the centre of the retina that allows us to see fine details clearly. Macular ischemia occurs when small blood vessels (capillaries) close. Vision blurs because the macula no longer receives sufficient blood supply to work properly.


04 Laser for Macular Edema

Laser photocoagulation is still the best treatment for diabetic macular edema. Diabetic macular edema, or DME, is the most common complication of diabetic retinopathy and it will affect almost everyone with the eye disease.


05 PDR – Prolific Diabetic Retinopathy

PDR is characterized by the growth of new and abnormally weak blood vessels from the retina into the vitreous gel that fills the eye.


06 Laser Procedure for Prolific Diabetic Retinopathy

Laser photocoagulation may be performed to seal damaged or abnormal blood vessels and prevent them from leaking. This treatment does not restore lost vision, but it can prevent further deterioration, which is why early diabetic retinopathy diagnosis through routine eye exams is imperative.


07 Vitreous Hemorrhage

Vitreous hemorrhage is the extravasation, or leakage, of blood into the areas in and around the vitreous humor of the eye. The vitreous humor is the clear gel that fills the space between the lens and the retina of the eye.


08 Vitrectomy

Vitrectomy is the surgical removal of the vitreous gel from the middle of the eye . It may be done when there is a retinal detachment, because removing the vitreous gel gives your eye doctor (ophthalmologist) better access to the back of the eye. The vitreous gel may also be removed if blood in the vitreous gel (vitreous hemorrhage) does not clear on its own.


The field of ophthalmology is advancing at a rapid rate. Revolutionary advances have enabled the preservation of sight in patients who once may have been permanently blind. Ophthalmologists were the first surgeons to use laser surgery and transplant surgery, often with miraculous results.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • Highly recommend this practice! I was in town visiting family and had an issue with my eye that worried me and needed to be checked.but couldn’t get in with another physician until later, and their reviews weren’t as high. I phoned Kunesh and was greeted by Julie, super pleasant on the phone and when I described my issue, she was very prompt in getting me an appointment. From the moment I arrived the staff was all busy working and multitasking. While I was filling out paperwork Elaine took

  • If and when you have a retina tear, this is the place to go. I was seen on a Saturday and was the only patient. If you live long enough and are near sighted and see Northern lights inside call. You will be seen. Normally this is not a problem, but only an ophthalmologist can tell. To avoid the long wait take the earliest appointment offered. If not, it is definitely worth the wait. The optometrist is great, too, but must be requested. Their attention to detail is amazing! You will have drops, s
