Retinal Detachment

The retina is a layer of nerve cells that lines the inside of the eye, like wallpaper, and enables the eye to see images. For the retina to function and remain healthy, it must stay attached to the inside of the eye because part of its blood and nutrient supply comes from the eye wall.

The best! I was diagnosed with a detached retina and was immediately sent to see Dr. Dadgostar. Immediately upon arriving at The Retina Partners office I began to find some calming because of the caring staff and excellent care by Dr. Dadgostar. Outstanding place. Thank you so much!

Dr. Engstrom is the best eye doctor I have ever been to. Getting an injection in the eye can be a scary and stressful procedure but he does everything with such ease that makes it a calm experience. He is really the best.

The Retina Partners represent the cutting edge in eye repair and treatments. I had retina surgery last year and the results were fantastic. On my non-surgery eye my doctor found a small tear that may have lead to a detached retina. He repaired it on the spot and it healed perfectly. I rate this office A+!!!

COVID-19 Update

During the extraordinary circumstances that we all face in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, you can be assured that The Retina Partners are dedicated to maintaining a safe and clean environment in our clinics. While we have remained open for urgent and emergent retinal needs throughout this pandemic, we are now transitioning to the resumption of routine care. As we do so, we have implemented changes to our clinic to optimize your safety. Here is what to expect:

General Office Precautions: In the interest of your safety and that of our entire staff, please know that we have all been fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. You can expect that your doctor and all staff members you encounter will be wearing a mask and gloves during your encounter. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the office, for both staff and patients. Social distancing, where possible, and other appropriate precautions are recommended for everyone and still in effect here in the office.

All staff members and patients will be required to wear masks regardless of vaccination status. For more information from the California Department of Public Health please visit their website.

Sterilization of rooms: All rooms and equipment will be sanitized after each patient visit with chemical cleaners which are proven to kill viruses and bacteria.You may be asked to wait for a few minutes while we clean and prepare a room for you. If this is the case, a staff member will direct you to a specific chair to optimize distance from others.

Waiting Room: Due to our waiting room distance requirements, our waiting rooms still have limited seating for patients. We will maintain a minimum distance of 6 feet between patients while you wait.Therefore, we ask that companions please wait outside of the waiting rooms until the patient is called into an exam room where we can seat you.

If the patient requires additional assistance for mobility or translation, please let the front desk staff know. We recognize that this is a stressful time for everyone. We promise to do everything in our power to make your visit with us as safe as possible. We look forward to seeing you soon.
