Ophthalmology, Vitreo-Retinal Surgery

Finding accurate medical information online is a challenge. It is hard to find what is relevant to the patient along with what is factual and backed by peer-reviewed literature. I am excited to be a part of Verywell's goal of providing accurate and understandable information for the general public.
