As pediatric retina specialists, our eye exam in Capitol Hill is designed to help detect any problems with your child in the early stages, before it has a chance to cause damage to his or her eyes or lead to any loss of vision. Some retinal diseases are silent, forming and progressing without any warning signs. That’s why we at The Retina Group of Washington believe in being proactive. We understand how precious your child is to you, and her or his vision is near the top of the list of things that you would do anything to ensure. That’s what we’re here for.
The retina is the part of the eye at the back, and it’s where light strikes after entering through the cornea. Under normal circumstances, it simply does its job and there is no reason to worry about it. But when indications of retinal disease are found through our eye exam in Capitol Hill, or he or she begins to experience symptoms, it is reassuring to know that you have a skilled and experienced eye doctor capable of diagnosing, assessing, and treating the disease.
Retina surgery is not something that we suggest unless other, non-invasive or minimally invasive solutions are either not appropriate or prove to be ineffective. There are a variety of treatment options that are available, depending on the specific problem, how far advanced the disease is, and your child’s unique circumstances. Among the diseases and conditions that we treat are juvenile retinal detachment, pediatric retina tumors, optic nerve anomalies, neonatal vitreous hemorrhage, and neovascularization of the retina. Our eye exam in Capitol Hill utilizes advanced equipment and state-of-the-art technology to leave no stone unturned when it comes to the well-being of your child’s retinas.
With such a dedicated staff and the facility to support optimal treatment, we’re proud to give you the confidence you need to feel assured that your child will be in the best of care. Our eye exam in Capitol Hill will either make certain that she or he has no cause for concern, or allow us the opportunity to take prompt action, either medically or surgically, if required.
