Dr. James Major at ASRS: Research on Fovea-Sparing Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachments
Dr. James Major, Jr. MD, PhD recently lectured at the American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS) Annual Meeting in Chicago on a clinical research study that has been conducted at Retina Consultants of Houston over a 13 year span.
He recently presented his research on fovea-sparing rhegmatogenous retinal detachment at the ASRS meeting and was also interviewed about the study by Dr. Aleksandra Rachitskaya from the Cole Eye Institute at the Cleveland Clinic.
Dr. Major found that time to surgical repair did not correlate with final visual outcomes and best corrected initial visual acuity was positively correlated with final vision. In the largest case series to date, these data suggest that macula on retinal detachments may be safely repaired within days by a familiar, dedicated OR staff, and anesthesia team with proper medical clearance.
