Eye Specialists, Dr. Barron and Dr. Fernandes, Bring the Latest Advancements in Eye Care
The physicians at The Eye Clinic of Monroe are taking specialty eye care in our region to a new level. Dr. Joseph Barron and Dr. Joshua Fernandes are utilizing top-of-the-line technology and techniques in the office and operating room to provide excellence in eye care.
Among their latest advancements, Drs. Barron and Fernandes are now using Alcon’s CONSTELLATION® Vision System in the operating room, which is the most advanced system on the market for performing surgery inside the eye. They are using the system to treat conditions such as advanced diabetic eye disease, retinal detachment, macular hole, macular pucker, and many other conditions.
Dr. Fernandes, a retina specialist who recently joined The Eye Clinic of Monroe, trained with some of the top eye surgeons in Chicago who currently utilize this system.
“I have used several different machines for surgery inside the eye and I can tell you this one is truly a game changer,” says Dr. Fernandes. “I am excited to bring this technology to the patients in our region.”
With this technology, Drs. Barron and Fernandes can now perform surgery inside the eye with instruments so small that their incisions in many cases won’t even need a stitch. This may result in increased patient comfort and faster recovery time.
Drs. Barron and Fernandes continue to bring advances in technology such as this to our region in an effort to provide superior eye care.
