What is the Retina?
The retina is the receptive element of the eye, similar to photographic film which captures the image formed in a camera. The retina converts images into electrical signals, which are transmitted to the brain via the optic nerve.
Summer Sun Eye Safety
Awareness of sun safety is important. Studies show that exposure to bright sunlight may increase the risk of developing cataracts and growths on the eye, including cancer. Sunlight reflected off sand, water and glass can cause photokeratitis, the condition responsible for snow blindness. So if you like to spend your summer on the beach or by the pool, this is important!

Dr. Khadem & Pieroni are like gods to me. I had retinal surgery by another doctor who messed up not once but twice. The other Dr. then told me that my condition was hopeless and that I had to accept the fact that I was going blind. Fortunately I did NOT give up and found these doctors who saved my sight 12 years ago. Recently I had the old buckle that doctor who told me I was doomed to go blind inserted removed; it couldn’t possibly have worked as it was inserted upside down. Because these doctors are so good they are in high demand and always squeezing in emergencies. You must accept that there is no knowing how long a visit will take but I can attest that if you have a serious problem this is the place to go
Truly an expert in his field that allows patients to consider options that are non surgical as the first means of recovery and treatment. Dr. Khadem is professional and kind in terms of treating patients with respect and communicating clearly in terms you understand. He deserves to be recognized for how good he is at what he does. I would 100% recommend him (despite hoping he doesn’t get too busy!).
I accompanied my fiancee to his first visit today (I called for an appointment after Dr. Wie’s recommendation) and was extremely impressed with the staff, the facility and most of all Dr. Khadem. Dr. Khadem took his time examining my fiancee’s scans and thoroughly examined his eyes. He explained in detail and listened to us, was so professional and caring. Top Doc if you ask me, too bad I can only give hime 5 stars..I would give him 10 if there was an option. I highly recommend Dr. Khadem!
