The Palisades Alliance for Seniors will host Dr. Daniel Su, speaking about “Retina and Vitreous Disorders” at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, November 18, in the Palisades Library community room, 861 Alma Real. The program is free and open to the public.
Su is a physician with Retina-Vitreous Associates Medical Group in Los Angeles and will address a few diseases that can affect the retina (the thin layer of tissue on the inside back wall of one’s eye that is responsible for vision).
He will speak about macular degeneration, macular holes, retinal tears and detachment, and will discuss warning signs for retinal disease and what vision changes indicate the need for immediate medical attention.
The doctor received his undergraduate degree from UCLA and his medical degree from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. Following an internship at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, he completed his residency training in ophthalmology at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA.
Su has completed a two-year vitreoretinal surgical fellowship at the renowned Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia. He has also been recognized with awards for both his research and surgery.
The doctor has authored numerous peer-reviewed scientific publications and textbook chapters and has been an invited speaker to present scientific papers and abstracts at various national ophthalmic and retina subspecialty meetings.
