Macular Degeneration

Why come to Florida Eye for macular degeneration diagnosis and treatment?

Simply put, there is no more qualified practice than Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute in which to entrust preserving your vision. Left undiagnosed and untreated, AMD can do irreparable damage. As South Florida’s premier institute for cutting edge macular degeneration treatments and national clinical trials for this condition, we are able to offer, through controlled studies, experimental treatments that are not available in other practices.

Why choose Dr. Katz, our macular degeneration specialist?

When other specialists in the field have patients they cannot help, it is well known in the area that Dr. Katz is the macular degeneration specialist to call. Not only does he specialize in the field; he also heads the national clinical trials for AMD at Florida Eye and is therefore privy to experimental treatments. And let’s not forget compassion. Here’s what Beverly & Sam have to say:

Dr. Katz, we appreciate your kindness and concern for the special treatment you gave us. You are a unique doctor and human being. Thanks so much!

Thank you for your care of my mother over the years that you were her ophthalmologist. Mom was a bright woman, a former vice-president and head of the Social Action Committee of an international women’s organization. With your help, she was able to retain the sight in one eye, which enabled her to continue attending conferences, making speeches, reading, etc. She was very grateful to you for that, as am I.


Cordially, Ellen

Lucentis has eliminated all of the swelling I had (within the first few months!) and Dr. Katz told me at my last checkup there’s absolutely no signs of leakage or swelling at all. It’s really incredible,” says Sal, who remembers that before treatment, “I had no real detail. I would look at a lawn and see a sea of green. Now, I can see each and every blade of grass — it’s amazing. And when I look at a plain wall, I can see the texture of the wall — also amazing.
