Global Retina Health Initiative
What's New in the Operating Room?
Michigan Retina Center founded the Global Retina Health Initiative, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The Global Retina Health Initiative aims to advance retinal health worldwide and accomplishes this goal by:
Conducting educational seminars
Providing diagnostic equipment to underserved areas
Supporting physicians who do not have adequate access to the tools and funding for research of retinal diseases
Your support makes a difference in improving retina health worldwide.

Our new intraoperative OCT (iOCT) technology enables us to utilize "real-time" imaging during vitreo-retinal surgery. This state-of-the-art system allows us to visualize the retinal surface while performing surgery. This technology is available in only a handful of institutions in the world and we are fortunate to be able to use this routinely on all of our surgical cases.
In addition to iOCT, we use a 3D Digital-Assisted Vitrectomy HD System (Ngenuity), which creates an overall increase in magnification and better depth of field during surgery compared to traditional microscopes.
