Detached or Torn Retina Treatment & Surgery

Why come to the Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute for detached and torn retina treatment?

Whether it is from an injury, age-related reasons, glaucoma, cataract surgery or even severe nearsightedness, a detached and torn retina can result in blindness if not diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible. The ophthalmologic surgeonsand staff at Florida Eye are accustomed to emergency eye situations and used to working with other doctors in the area to meet and exceed the needs of their patients. When we get a call about a detached or torn retina from another physician, we make arrangements for that patient to be seen as quickly as possible.

Why choose Dr. Katz?

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
