Clinical Interests

Dr. Park is a vitreo-retinal specialist who provides both surgical and medical management of all vitreo-retinal disorders including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, posterior uveitis and trauma. She also treats patients with intraocular tumors including proton beam irradiation for ocular melanomas and chemotherapy for retinoblastomas.

Dr. Park is interested in using new imaging techniques to study macular disorders and in developing new treatments for retinal disorders including macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.

Dr. Park is devoted to providing the best and latest treatments for her patients with vitreo-retinal disorders. She believes that this can best achieved by a combination of excellent medical support staff, latest diagnostic instruments and thorough patient education. As such, Dr. Park and her staff are always readily available for any questions or concerns from her patients.
