Here at The Retina Group of Washington, we are proud to be home to the top Washington Hospital Center eye surgeon that is always striving to provide our patients with the very best care possible. One of the most common issues that our Sterling eye surgeon treats in our patients here at The Retina Group of Washington is age-related macular degeneration. Age-Related macular degeneration occurs in two forms—wet age-related macular degeneration, and dry age-related macular degeneration.
If you are facing a later stage of the disease in which your vision is significantly threatened, you may be a candidate for an amazing treatment we have available called CentraSight. CentraSight makes use of a tiny telescope, an FDA-approved medical device, which our Sterling eye surgeon implants inside the eye in order to improve both your vision and your quality of life if you are dealing with the difficulties of advanced age-related macular degeneration. The amazing CentraSight telescope works by reducing the impact of the central blind vision blind spot that develops as a result of age-related macular degeneration. The implantable telescope projects the objects the patient is trying to see onto a healthier part of their eye—in an area where the retina has not yet degenerated. This proves to be life changing for many of our patients, and makes their experience with end-stage age related macular degeneration much more manageable.
