Macular & Retinal Surgery

Macular & Retinal SurgeryMacular Degeneration and Diabetic Retinopathy are two of the most common causes of irreversible blindness in the United States. Common symptoms for these diseases are suddenly decreased central vision, distorted vision, and fixed black spots in patient vision. Fortunately, the treatments for these two sight-threatening diseases have improved significantly in recent years.

At Vold Vision, we are pleased to offer the most advanced diagnostic and medical and laser therapy available for these conditions. The new micro-pulse green diode laser allows us to successfully treat patients with macular edema without inflicting additional blind spots in your vision that are typical of standard laser therapy. We seek to work closely with your primary care physicians to ensure quality treatment of your eyes, but also assist in providing a holistic approach to medical care. Enhancing your entire quality of life is very important to us.

In addition, we manage common vitreoretinal conditions characterized by floaters, flashing lights and shadows in patient vision. Fortunately, if these types of symptoms are addressed promptly, more severe complications such as retinal detachments and more involved vitreoretinal surgery can often be avoided. Office-based laser treatments are usually successful in treating retinal tears, and allow for patients to maintain their sight. If you were to develop these types of symptoms, please do not hesitate to contact us at either our Bentonville or Fayetteville office promptly for evaluation and management.
