We’re Specialists in Surgical and Retinal Treatments for Connecticut, New York, and Beyond.

Meet Our Doctors

A vitreo-retinal center is only as good as its doctors.

If the measure of a medical practice is its practitioners, then Connecticut-based New England Retina is fortunate indeed. Our ophthalmologists are all board-certified, highly trained vitreo-retinal specialists committed to providing excellent patient care. While that is true, it is only the beginning.

Our doctors are world leaders in the field of vitreo-retinal care. Between them, they have authored many books and articles, given countless lectures around the globe, conducted cutting edge clinical trials, and expanded the envelope of medical research in their field.
