I am a Type 1 diabetic for 22 years.  Was diagnosed with macular edema a few years ago.  Have seen three different specialists and have had laser treatment and, over the last two years, Avastin injections.  I am not sure if I am making the kind of progress that I would like or if this is the best I can expect.  Would love to visit the Joslin in Boston but it would be difficult to make recurring trips.  I am looking for any referrals to retina specialists in NYC or the surrounding area who might be helpful.

 

Thanks for any help you may be able to give.

I was a patient at the Naomi Berrie Center at Columbia U when I lived in NYC. Daniel Casper, M.D., PhD was the physician that examined my eyes. I've never needed anything more than the annual eye exam, so I can't comment on what happens when you're diagnosed with eye damage. However, he knew his stuff and the Naomi Berrie Center was great for me as a type 1 that's on a pump.
