Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. I can only speak to the surgeons in the US as this is where I practice and have the most experience. There are many excellent academic eye institutions where your son can receive top-notch care for his detached retina. The Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland; the Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Bascom-Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, Florida; Casey Eye Institute in Portland, Oregon. These are all excellent academic institutions that I can recommend to you where you will get the best care for his eyes.
