KNOXVILLE (March 2, 2015)—The Ophthalmology practice of Drs. Campbell, Cunningham, Taylor & Haun has expanded its Regional Retina Center.
Regional Retina Center at Drs. Campbell, Cunningham, Taylor & Haun was created to focus specifically on treatment of retina-related eye diseases, including Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy, Retinal Vein and Artery Occlusions, Floaters and Flashes, Uveitis and Retinal Tears/Retinal Detachment. Treatments are advancing for many of these conditions, and Regional Retina Center offers a fellowship-trained, board-certified specialist along with specialized facilities for treatment.
Dr. Cole joins the practice of Drs. Campbell, Cunningham, Taylor & Haun as Retina Specialist after finishing his residency at the University of Kentucky Medical Center and completing a year-long Retina Fellowship at UK.
“The subspecialty of retina is particularly exciting to me,” says Dr. Cole. “You’re always working on the edge of technology and it’s great to know that there are even more innovative treatments coming in the future.”
The Regional Retina Center expansion features a new suite, which includes three additional exam lanes, two screening rooms, two testing rooms, and two waiting areas.
“Retina diseases are, in many ways, the most challenging field in Ophthalmology,” said Dr. Philip Campbell. “As the population ages, these diseases become more prevalent, and we’re delighted to provide East Tennesseans with a dedicated location for treatment. The expansion of Regional Retina Center gives us extraordinary capabilities for helping our patients throughout East Tennessee.”
