Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Trotta "As an Ophthalmologist I believe everyone should have a comprehensive eye examination every year, not just a vision test. The inside of your eyes, the retina, can reveal many things about your general health. This is especially true if you or your family are affected with systemic diseases like Diabetes or high blood pressure. It is especially important to know you are seeing an Ophthalmologist. In my practice I provide both comprehensive eye exams and vision exams in one visit."
