A retina specialist is…
Dr. Kosobucki is board certified ophthalmologist who has also received additional fellowship training in diseases and surgery of the vitreous and retina. He commonly treats diabetic eye disease, vitreous hemorrhage, macular degeneration, retinal detachments, pre-retinal fibrosis, uveitis, and other vitreo-retinal diseases.
The retina is…
A thin sheet of nerve cells, including the light-sensitive cells that you may know as rod and cones, make up the retina. In the retina, light is converted into electrical signals that are processed by the brain, and thus give you the ability to see.
When the retina is damaged by illness or injury, the eye loses its ability to focus properly, see colors, or obscure your vision.
Preparing for your appointment
We only accept patients who are referred to us by a physician. Typically, your physician will arrange for your first appointment.
If not, appointments can be made at our Winston-Salem or Archdale office.
Our office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m Monday – Friday, and you can reach us by calling 336-970-5900 during office hours. After-hours emergencies will be routed to the technician on-call.
When you call our office, be prepared to tell us about the issues you are facing, so we can schedule the appropriate amount of time. Please notify us when scheduling an appointment if you will be requiring any special assistance during your visit.
Your first appointment typically lasts about two hours and will consist of an eye examination. Your eyes may be dilated at this time, so you may need to arrange for alternative transportation to and from our office.
