Florida Retina Consultants is one of the areas foremost retinal clinics, specializing in vitreoretinal diseases and surgery. They also specialize in the treatment of retinal detachment, proliferative vitreoretinopathy, macular holes, diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, epiretinal membranes, retinopathy of prematurity, as well as other macular and vitreous problems.
The most common type of retinal detachment is called a “rhegmatogenous retinal detachment” and, by definition, is cause by a retinal tear or hole in the retina.
Macular hole is also known as “idiopathic” macular hole, that is, science has yet to determine the actual cause of the hole. Macular holes occur perfectly normal eyes.
An ERM is a thin membrane which covers the surface of the macula. The membrane can cause the underlying macular tissue to wrinkle or “pucker” causing blurry vision and/or distortion.
Macular degeneration (also called age-related macular degeneration or ARMD) is a disease that affects about 11 million adults in the United States. ARMD is also the leading cause of blindness in the world.
Diabetic Retinopathy is one of the leading causes of blindness in the developed world and affects almost every patient with diabetes to varying degrees.
A posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) is a natural event, yet is a common cause of retinal tears. A PVD will happen to everyone as we age and onset is usually sudden.

Dr. Moinfar is the best doctor you can get; I know this from my own experience. He is very knowledgeable, personable and truly cares about you and your eye health. He also has great bedside manners. I've had 3 surgeries for retina detachment. The first one was performed by a different doctor at another practice. The last two were performed by Dr. Moinfar. The difference in care I received between the two doctors is great. I am extremely happy having Dr. Moinfar as my doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs this type of eye care.
Dr. Moinfar, Thank you for the treatment I received for my retinal vein occlusion during the short time I was your patient. I truly appreciate that you understood my anxiety about receiving a shot in my eye – each time I got one. You are patient and caring, unfortunately not common in health care today. Had I not moved out of the area, you would still be my choice for care.
My 88 year old mother had a torn retina. She was referred to Dr. Moinfar, who fit us in late in the day. What an incredible experience it was with Dr. Moinfar and his exceptional staff. They stayed past closing to ensure my mother’s care was addressed. Dr. Moinfar arranged to fit my mother’s surgery during his lunch, on his surgery day, to ensure she didn’t have to wait. My mother felt so comfortable with Dr. Moinfar’s calm and reassuring demeanor. His sense of humor made a stressful situation so much better. During her surgical procedure my mother said she recalled Dr. Moinfar singing and it created a nice experience for her. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Moinfar and his staff for their amazing support, professionalism, and outstanding medical care!
