Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Allingham I am an ophthalmologist who specializes in the diagnosis and management of medical conditions affecting the retina including macular degeneration (AMD) diabetic retinopathy retinal vein occlusion macular edema and other macular diseases. I believe that no two patients are exactly alike. For each of my patients I carefully consider exam findings imaging and patient needs and preferences to create a customized treatment plan. In addition to patient care I study the biology diagnosis and treatment of macular edema and I am involved in basic laboratory science ocular imaging analysis and clinical trials of new medications. I think that my time in clinic drives my research and that the insights gained from my research keep me at the cutting edge of diagnosis and treatment strategies for my patients. Outside of work I spend as much time as possible outdoors with my wife and daughter. In whatever time is left I can be found exploring western North Carolina on my mountain bike.
