Drs. William Rodden, Christine Gonzales and John Hyatt

Your physician, eye care specialist, ophthalmologist or optometrist has referred you to us for specialized care.

Our full-time retina specialists -- Dr. William S. Rodden, Dr. Christine R. Gonzales and Dr. John D. Hyatt -- are fully trained M.D. ophthalmologists who have completed additional training in vitreoretinal surgery. They regularly perform medical and laser surgeries using the latest techniques, and they continue to participate in national studies and medical seminars to stay at the forefront of surgical breatkthroughs, new technology, and cutting-edge medical treatments.

Our entire staff at the Retina and Vitreous Center strives in every way to care for our patients with compassion, expertise and excellence. Our goal is for each patient to feel completely comfortable and satisfied with the care he or she receives from us.

We will work closely with your referring eye care specialist, your primary care physician, and other members of your health care team to provide the comprehensive care you need. Because many retinal problems are complex, we also remain available for follow-up education.
