Dr. Alexander Eaton published in Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute publication, Advanced Studies in Ophthalmology
Exploring the complexities of treatment options for care of diabetic macular edema (DME), Dr. Alexander Eaton, founder and director of Retina Health Center has contributed a compilation of case presentations, recently published in Advanced Studies in Ophthalmology, a continuing education forum of The Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins.
Using case presentations, Dr. Eaton’s article illustrates how retina specialists can apply the most current data on efficacy and safety of treatment therapies for optimal treatment and management of patients with DME.
DME occurs in people with diabetes when the blood vessels in the eye become damaged as a result of elevated blood sugars and byproducts. The condition can lead to vision loss.
Dr. Eaton is a nationally regarded expert on the treatment of DME, and Retina Health Center was the first center in the U.S. to treat DME patients with ILUVIEN since the
FDA approval of the ILUVIEN implant for the treatment of DME.
Retina Health Center and the Macular Degeneration Research Center were established in 2002 by Dr. Alexander M. Eaton, a long-time Southwest Florida resident, who has been practicing ophthalmology in Lee and Collier counties for more than 20 years. Dr. Eaton has been the principal investigator for numerous studies to prevent and treat macular degeneration, and has invented numerous medical devices for use by patients and physicians that are used worldwide.
