Henry Feng, MD

“It is a privilege to be trusted with the responsibility of protecting sight. In caring for patients with retinal disease, offering guidance and reassurance are often as important as treating the condition itself. My mission is to provide each patient with a clear understanding of his or her retinal disorder and deliver the highest quality medical and surgical care with kindness and compassion.”

He is an expert in managing the full spectrum of vitreoretinal diseases, including retinal detachment, retinal holes/tears, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vascular occlusion, epiretinal membrane, vitreomacular traction syndrome, macular hole, dislocated intraocular lens, as well as other rare and complex retinal conditions.
