Damien Luviano, MD, FACS I am a board certified physician and surgeon. I have dedicated my life and career to the management of eye diseases. I enjoy teaching both healthcare workers and patients about eye diseases.

Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Though the authors conclude there is no confirmation of a causal effect between the two, it supports the growing body of literature. http://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamaophthalmology/article-abstract/2594012

Uncontrolled Diabete: Diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema are serious, but the good news are that trials such as the dcct, edic, ukpds, accord, ukpds-hds, field have shown that if glucose levels, blood pressure, cholesterol, and lipids are controlled diabetic retinopathy can get better.

Protect good eye: Retina detachment is a serious eye condition. The causes can be trauma, inherited conditions, and age related to name a few. Your goal should be to protect the good eye by: 1) protect good eye with break resistant eyeglasses 2) avoid elective surgery of good eye 3) find cause of detachment and take steps to prevent it in good eye. The color change in bad eye is likely related to degeneration.
