Eye Diseases

The retina is a target of multiple not only ocular diseases but also systemic. Dr. Rubin is an expert in the identification and treatment of diseases of the retina and vitreous including:

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes and a leading cause of blindness.

Retina Vein Occlusion

The retina is the inner coat of the eye which is a light-sensitive layer of tissue.

Macular Hole

The “macula” is the center of the retina where the highest acuity is obtained.

Vitreus Floaters

These floaters are just condensations of the protein gel in the eye.
