How a Retina Consultation Guides Your Visual Health
A retina consultation is a specialized examination conducted by our retinal specialist, Dr. Jerry Tsong, to assess the health and function of the retina. During a retina consultation, Dr. Tsong performs a comprehensive evaluation, which may include dilating the pupils to obtain a clear view of the retina. This allows him to detect any abnormalities, such as retinal tears, detachment, or diseases like diabetic retinopathy or macular degeneration. The consultation may also involve diagnostic tests to provide detailed insights into the retinal condition.
Retina consultations are crucial for the early detection of conditions, effective management, and preservation of vision, ensuring optimal eye health and well-being. To learn more about what to expect during a retina consultation, read our informative guide.

Expert Solutions for Diabetic Retinopathy
Diabetic retinopathy is a condition that affects the eyes of individuals with diabetes, potentially leading to vision loss if left untreated. It occurs when high blood sugar levels cause damage to the blood vessels in the retina.
Treatment for diabetic retinopathy may involve laser procedures that aim to seal leaking blood vessels or prevent the growth of abnormal vessels. Additionally, Anti-VEGF injections, including medications like Avastin, Lucentis, and Eylea, can be administered to reduce swelling and inhibit disease progression.
Dr. Tsong utilizes state-of-the-art diagnostic techniques to assess the severity of diabetic retinopathy and develop an appropriate treatment plan. Don’t let diabetic retinopathy overshadow your vision and quality of life. Schedule a consultation today and take control of your eye health.
Comprehensive Care for Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye condition that affects the central part of the retina, known as the macula. It is a leading cause of vision loss among adults, especially those over 50.
Treatment for AMD depends on the type and severity of the condition. We utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic technologies to assess the extent of the disease and determine the most appropriate course of action. Treatments like Anti-VEGF injections or photodynamic therapy are recommended to target abnormal blood vessel growth or reduce fluid leakage in the macula.
Our patient-focused approach ensures clear communication, compassionate support, and transparency — actively involving you in decision-making. Trust Dr. Tsong and his team to provide personalized treatment, empowering you to preserve your central vision and enjoy a future filled with clarity and visual vitality.

Managing Vitreous Detachment with Expert Care
Vitreous detachment is a common age-related condition that occurs when the gel-like substance called the vitreous inside the eye begins to shrink and separate from the retina. This detachment can lead to symptoms like floaters, flashes of light, and a feeling of a curtain or cobwebs in the field of vision.
In most cases, vitreous detachment requires no specific treatment as it is a natural process. However, it is essential to have a comprehensive eye examination to ensure that the detachment has not caused any retinal tears or other complications. If any complications are detected, prompt treatment is necessary to prevent further damage to the retina.
Dr. Tsong is skilled in diagnosing and managing vitreous detachment and associated complications. At Greenwich Ophthalmology Associates, we aim to ensure the health and well-being of your eyes and provide you with the peace of mind you deserve.
