On June 14, 2017, Dr. Robert Sherman performed Argon Laser Treatment on the clinic’s first set of patients receiving retinal therapy.
This laser is used for many different ophthalmic procedures, including retina disorders, glaucoma, corneal and ocular tumors, conjunctivitis, and astigmatism.
The treatment is done by inducing heat energy in the retina which creates small scars to cauterize blood vessels. The procedure is painless and performed in our surgery room.
Pictured is Dr. Sherman performing the Argon Laser Treatment on one of our patients at the eye clinic. He is an ophthalmologist trained to diagnose, treat and manage diseases and trauma of the eye. This treatment would not be possible without the generous donation of the laser machine by Dr. Rachid Aouchiche at West Coast Eye Center in Fort Myers.
