June is Cataract Awareness month. Although we at Tennessee Retina do not specialize in cataracts, your retina condition may be a factor in your decision or need for cataract surgery. In Current Opinion in Ophthalmology, they describe the recent evidence regarding cataract surgery in patients with coexisting retinal disease, focusing on factors that are important to the perioperative evaluation and treatment of this patient population. The Tennessee Retina physicians and staff will work closely with your other eye doctors to educate and promote overall eye health for our patients.
