Retina-Vitreous Consultants' scope of practice is limited to consultation, laser surgical intervention, and intraocular surgical rehabilitation of vision loss secondary to diseases of the retina, vitreous, and macula. These conditions include diabetic eye disease, macular degeneration, retinal tears and detachments, ocular inflammation (uveitis), macular surface anomalies, such as macular holes and puckers, retinal vascular diseases, and hereditary and juvenile retinal degenerative conditions and dystrophies.
Our Retinal Imaging Center offers digital real time fluorescein and ICG angiography, ocular ultrasound, and optical coherence tomography for immediate review by Dr. Cohen or Dr. Kanter to determine a patient's course of treatment. OCT is an invaluable tool in the diagnosis of retinal disease and allows for two-dimensional quantitative and volumetric analysis of a patient's clinical response to laser, surgical, and pharmacotherapeutic treatments.
Retina-Vitreous Consultants is an active participant in national collaborative clinical research trials investigating the effects of various drug therapies, laser modalities, and surgical interventions in the treatment of patients with diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration. We have been recognized by our peers for our expertise in being the only retinal practice in Northern New Jersey to be certified by the world renowned Harvard affiliated Joslin Center for Diabetes in Boston.
