Kung Eye Center sees patients with all types of retinal disorders or diseases. In addition to Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Diabetic Retinopathy, we also see patients with macular hole, macular pucker, macular edema, retinal detachment, central serous chorioretinopathy, and retinal vein occlusion. Kung Eye can help diagnose and treat your retinal condition, in coordination with our retinal team.
Macular pucker occurs when creases or wrinkles form in the macula. In order to work properly, the macula should lie flat against the back of your eye, so when wrinkles form, it can affect your central vision. This condition can cause vision to appear wavy, or you may have trouble seeing details clearly. In some cases, a blank spot may even appear in your central vision. Macular pucker is usually caused by age, and patients with other eye problems may also develop it. Treatment options depend on the severity of your symptoms and may include a change in your glasses or contact prescription, or a surgery called vitrectomy.
Macular edema is a build-up of fluid in the macula. Symptoms may include blurry vision, and colors may appear faded or washed out. In serious cases, there may also be noticeable vision loss. A common cause of macular edema is diabetic retinopathy, though it may also be the result of eye surgery, age, or inflammatory diseases that affect the eye. Treatment options depend on the form of macular edema that you have, though intravitreal injection is a common treatment.
“I recently had corrective lens surgery performed by Dr. Kung with amazing results. I no longer require glasses for reading or distance (driving, tv viewing etc.). Dr. Kung and his staff are consistently friendly, helpful and provided excellent care pre-, during and post-surgery...best care anywhere. I would definitely recommend the Kung Eye Center for the treatment of any ophthalmological disorder.
“Dear Kung is an absolute genius! In my opinion he is the best cataract surgeon in NY city.

Central serious chorioretinopathy is when fluid builds up under the retina, leading to distorted vision. This condition commonly affects one eye at a time but may affect both as well. In many cases, central serious chorioretinopathy clears up on its own in a couple of months without treatment. However, if severe vision loss occurs, laser treatment, oral medications, or photodynamic therapy may be used.
Retinal vein occlusion occurs when a vein in the retina becomes blocked, causing blurry vision or blindness in the eye. While some people have no symptoms, others may notice blurry vision, dark spots or lines floating in your vision, or pressure or pain in your eye. While there is no cure for retinal vein occlusion, there are treatment options to address any complications and protect your vision.
