Dr. Weber's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Weber "Welcome to Island Retina, a unique practice committed to helping individuals with their retinal problems. We offer comprehensive care in a warm, supportive environment with a focus on overall health. Having retinal disease can be very scary as vision is so precious. Our staff is carefully selected and trained to make your visit pleasant. Island Retina understands that your lives are busy and a driver is necessary, and so there is an emphasis on keeping the waiting time down, yet every effort is made to accommodate your emergencies. We are committed to three aspects of medicine: treatment, research and education. We offer treatment for numerous diseases including age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinal disease, retinal vein occlusions, retinal tears and detachments, and vitreous floaters. At our main office in Shirley, we have a laser suite and a Medicare- approved ambulatory surgical suite, Suffolk Surgery Center We also have a satellite office in Commack. Island Retina is a major clinical test center. Currently we are enrolling in phase 2 and phase 3 studies in age-related macular degeneration and diabetic macular edema. The center is committed to developing better treatments for our patients so they can improve their vision with less difficulty. Our desire is to be part of the future of retinal treatment and provide more answers to our patients. Education is a key part of the practice. This includes lecturing at major meetings, and dinner lectures to teach ophthalmic technicians across the United States. But most importantly, educating our patients and families about their diseases, treatment options, and risks and benefits of treatment. We pride ourselves in answering all your questions."
This content was provided by Dr. Weber "Island Retina treats everyone as if they are our best friend or relative. We listen carefully to a patient's story, review studies and any past medical reports, do a careful and thorough eye exam with dilation.We show them their pictures which often include OCT, fluoroscein angiography and Optomaps. Treatment options are reviewed. We always recommend seeking a second opinion. Frequently, patients will ask me"What would you do, if it were your eye". I always contemplate this deeply and give them a very educated but honest answer. But, I also assure them that I will support them in any decision they make. Sometimes a course of action is charted, but sometimes patients need to come back a few times to discuss options. We treat each person as an individual, and we do not rush decisions. "
