Q: I have retinal issues, should I come to WVI, or come to WVI first (and then you can refer me to other places if you feel need)?
We are anterior segment specialist (cornea - for SMILE/LASIK, lens - for cataract surgery), and though we do not treat the retina, in many patients who have retinal problems, we still can help them improve their eyesight by removing their cataracts.
- If you have not had cataract surgery yet, we would like to see you, to perform a thorough exam, to see if we could help you improve eyesight by removing the cataracts. And if referral to a retinal specialist is needed, we can do that too.
- If you already have had cataract surgery, then, we will be happy to refer you directly to a retinal specialist.
