Raymond Iezzi Jr., M.D.
Raymond Iezzi Jr., M.D., conducts preclinical and clinical translational trials in several ophthalmology-related areas.
Dr. Iezzi's clinical interests include retinal degenerative diseases as well as all aspects of vitreoretinal surgery, with a special interest in complex retinal detachment repair associated with diabetes, trauma and proliferative vitreoretinopathy.
Significance to patient care
Dr. Iezzi's research will benefit patient care by introducing new methods of slowing retinal degeneration in patients with retinitis pigmentosa, age-related macular degeneration, retinal detachment and complex trauma. His work in the field of retinal prosthesis will eventually lead to methods for restoring vision in patients with advanced retinal degeneration.
