Our Vision for Better Retina Care
To drive advances in clinical care that consistently preserve the gift of sight.
We will lead the Retinal Vitreous industry toward high-quality and cost-effective healthcare, creating outcomes that exceed the expectations of our members, partners, and patients.
Our alliance of retina physicians exists to enhance business systems, focusing the unrealized incremental values of our member practices in order to build real and lasting value, create paths to increase referrals, improve quality of care and outcomes, as well as mitigate compliance and market risks.
