Dr. Irene Voo is a Board-Certified Ophthalmologist and Retina Specialist – a type of ophthalmologist that specializes in diseases of the retina and vitreous, such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal artery/vein occlusions (stroke of the eye), macular holes, retinal holes/tears, detachments, flashes/floaters (posterior vitreous detachment), uveitis, genetic/hereditary retinal disorders, and examination/treatment of any eye condition causing vision loss.
Dr. Voo’s mission is to provide the best medical and surgical care in a timely and caring manner. Dr. Voo understands that it is frightening to lose eyesight and she takes time to make sure each patient’s experience is a positive one filled with education and hope.
Dr. Voo really impressed me! She could not be more kind, intelligent, patient...just wow. And her amazing office staff members were very sweet with me on the phone and were able to get me in very quickly when I described my symptoms. She is clearly at the top of her field, and she was able to confirm what another retina specialist (Dr. Murthy from Pasadena/Beverly Hills) told me -- that I had retina tufts, not tears.
