"I love that in retina, we have the ability to use our clinical exam and imaging techniques to examine a part of the body that is less than a millimeter in thickness. More importantly, we have the tools and surgical techniques to be able to diagnose and fix many retinal problems to improve a patient’s vision and quality of life." — Elaine Binkley
