Patients no longer have to deal with the inconvenience, weather, or expense of traveling into the valley for their retinal surgery care.
Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) November 2, 2010
Voluntary health organization Research to Prevent Blindness (RPB), conducted a study that found 97% of all blindness in the United States results from common eye diseases, including those affecting the retina, such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration. As leading eye care specialists, Barnet Dulaney Perkins performs more retinal surgery in Arizona than any other eye care practice in the state. With offices located throughout the valley, as well as above the Mogollon Rim where they operate a full-service ambulatory surgery center, the surgeons at Barnet Dulaney Perkins say they are able to provide a range of eye care procedures for their diverse group of patients.
As leading retina surgeons in Arizona, the ability to provide a full-service ambulatory surgery center to areas above the Mogollon Rim such as Flagstaff and Show Low, allows their patients from the northern counties of Arizona to have all their retinal needs met without the need to travel to the valley.Supported by state-of-the-art imaging systems and technology, as well as superior surgical equipment and machinery, the surgeons at Barnet Dulaney Perkins say the eye center locations in Northern Arizona allow them to produce optimal results with the greatest respect for their patients’ safety and convenience. “Patients no longer have to deal with the inconvenience, weather, or expense of traveling into the valley for their retinal surgery care.”
According to RPB, diabetic retinopathy in Arizona and across the U. S. is the leading cause of new cases of blindness among people aged 20-74. With that in mind, the eye surgeons at Barnet Dulaney Perkins say the ability to diagnose diabetic retinopathy early on is crucial. By providing easily-accessible eye care centers across Arizona, such as the retinal surgery centers in the Flagstaff and Show Low area, the eye surgeons say patients are more likely to maintain proper eye health with routine exams, thus making it easier for them to provide the treatment needed to save the vision of their patients.
Regardless of whether their patients have been diagnosed with retinal diseases such as macular degeneration in Arizona, or are pursuing better vision through laser eye surgery, the surgeons at Barnet Dulaney Perkins say the services they offer above the Mogollon Rim further demonstrate the fact that their patients are considered above all else. “The patient comes first. We provide the type of care we would, in fact, have provided for our own family members.”
