October at RCB- An Action Packed Month!

By admin | Nov 17, 2015

Retina Society 2015!

October was an exciting and productive month for us here at RCB. Our Ophthalmologists, Dr. Weiter and Dr. Nandakumar attended the annual Retina Society that met the first week in October in Paris. The doctors represented our practice, learned about exciting new research that is on the forefront of retina and met with some of the world’s most talented retina physicians.

What is Retina Society?

Retina Society is an Annual Science meeting with a mission to “reduce worldwide visual disability and blindness by promoting the education and professional interaction of vitreoretinal specialists, providing optimal care for patients with vitreoretinal diseases, and encouraging, through clinical and basic research, the discovery and development of new means to further patient care.”-Retina Society Website
Going to Retina Society is a great way for our doctors to keep at the cutting edge of new developments in the field of retina in order to preserve the integrity of our patients’ sight and eye health.

Upcoming COPE Event

After the doctors returned, we had our second annual COPE event October 28 at our Peabody office. We had a great group of Optometrists attend and discussed treatment and management of Diabetic Retinopathy and Age Related Macular Degeneration. We hope everyone that attended enjoyed themselves and hope to see all of you at our next COPE event!

In the interest of maintaining further transparency and providing a wide breadth of information to our patients and providers, this blog will serve as an educational and informative resource on interesting happenings within Retina Consultants of Boston and in the greater field of Ophthalmology.

Here at Retina Consultants of Boston, Dr. John J. Weiter and Dr. Namrata Nandakumar are on the forefront of diagnostic techniques, treatment and micro-surgical techniques for macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachments, macular holes, and a number of other issues affecting the vitreous and retina.
