Dr. Marta Recasens, MD
I am a board certified ophthalmologist with subspecialty fellowship training in vitreoretinal disease and surgery. I have been in private practice since 1999 in Glendale, California. I specialize in all conditions that affect the back of the eye like diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degenration, retinal tears and detachments, vascular occlusions and other sight-threatening diseases. I performed intravitreal injections and lasers in my office. Microscopic vitrectomy surgery I performed at Glendale Memorial Hospital, Physicians' Adventist Surgery Center and Chevy Chase Surgery Center. I have received many accolades but the most rewarding is when I see my patients' gratitude reflected in their eyes.

Care Philosophy

Helping my patients restore and preserve their vision by overcoming sight-threatening conditions eclipses any academic recognition or awards. One cannot describe the satisfaction of recovering vision lost to such conditions as diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, retinal detachments and other retinal diseases. I pride myself in being a caring and honest professional. My philosophy is to treat others the way I would want my own family to be treated.
