Dr. Weber's Care Philosophy

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.

Patient Comments (1)
in Commack, NY |
From the first phone call to make the appointment right down to the follow-up for next steps was a pleasure. This doctor and staff goes above and beyond. It's rare to have to bring a 15 year old to a retina specialist and they were understanding, kind and most important, they were beyond competent.

Dr. Weber says...

Our practice is unique in that we offer comprehensive care in a cozy environment.  My training involved undergraduate school at McGill University in Montreal, medical school at Columbia University in New York, a residency in ophthalmology at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary in New York, and a fellowship in retinal and vitreal diseases and surgery at Harvard University, Mass Eye and Ear Infirmary. Since we are a major clinical test center, we adhere to the highest standards for vision testing, fluorescein angiography and OCT testing. 

Dr. Weber says...

 I was fortunate to receive a great education and training. I have over 25 years of experience in treating retinal disease and doing lasers, surgery and injections.   I have enjoyed my career and have worked hard with my colleagues to stay current.
