–By Tammy We haven’t cel­e­brated Star­bucks Fri­day in many months. 2013 was def­i­nitely a year of tran­si­tion. Our accoun­tant just sent tax forms to me to for­ward and I have #10 past/present employ­ees! How is it that we have gone through so many in one year? Two had to move out of state and I […]

We stop by Carl Zeiss […]

The end of our Acad­emy of Oph­thal­mol­ogy 2013 expe­ri­ence is com­ing to an end. Tes and Gail are on their way home as I write this. Tammy and I have one day of classes to go. As always it has been a valu­able expe­ri­ence. I learned about a most recent study com­par­ing Avastin and Lucentis. […]

–By Tammy I am sure that you too have heard the com­mer­cials. I know that many of our Pacific Retina Care ℠ patients are insured through their employ­ers. We also have patients who are cov­ered by Medicare, a Medicare Advan­tage pro­gram, or a form of Med­ic­aid. I want you to know how very lucky you […]
