My experience with Dr. Rao (surgery for a detached retina) and his office was outstanding. He cares about his patients and takes time to offer clear explanations and answer questions. I'm thrilled with the results of the surgery and will recommend Dr. Rao to friends and family.

Since beginning treatment for the "wet" type of macular degeneration my vision has improved far more than I expected. Under the well-controlled retinal exams & injections I am so grateful to be self-sufficient & independent. My thanks to the staff at Retina Associates of Cleveland.
