The Retina Care Center
Are Important To Us
The Retina Care Center is a specialized ophthalmology practice with retina specialists dedicated to caring for patients with eye problems specific to the retina. Founded by Eric P. Suan, M.D. in Baltimore, Maryland on August 31, 1998 our team of specialists and staff is committed to offering our patients the most sophisticated and comprehensive diagnostic evaluations and the most current treatments for all retinal disorders. Retinal disorders often represent the most serious and challenging of eye problems to accurately diagnose and manage and can require injections, laser treatments, surgery and other methods for preventing and restoring vision loss. Through our robust clinical research program we are often able to offer our patients potential new, more effective and more durable treatments for retinal disease including Dry AMD, Wet AMD, and Diabetic Retinopathy & Retinal Vascular Veno-occlusive disease.
Our doctors and staff members strive to do this in the most personal and individualized manner possible, involving family members and other caregivers as much as possible. Each patient is treated uniquely and a treatment recommendation is never made until a careful assessment of the medical facts and the patient’s needs and wishes are discussed. Faced with the uncertainties of visual loss, many patients approach a visit to our office with anxiety and trepidation. Our goal is to provide you with the facts behind your retinal problem and the possible treatment choices and outcomes. We are here to help you understand your condition so that you can make often difficult decisions with confidence. We are here to care for you.
What is a Retina Specialist
A retina specialist is a medical doctor who has specialized in ophthalmology and sub-specialized in diseases and surgery of the vitreous body of the eye and the retina. This subspecialty is sometimes known as vitreoretinal medicine. A retina specialist undergoes many years of training after college, including four years of medical school, a one-year general medical internship, a three-year residency in comprehensive ophthalmology, and one to two years of additional subspecialty fellowship training.
