Procedures We Perform at Venice Retina
A Note on Retina Surgery
There are times when retinal and macular conditions are serious enough that surgery may be necessary. When this happens, there are few doctors who are more qualified to operate than Dr. Anita Shane.
Please note that some retinal procedures, such as intravitreal injection and retinal laser, are performed in our office. We perform outpatient surgery at the Bayview Surgery Center, Surgery Center at St. Andrews, or at Manatee or Sarasota Memorial Hospital.

Intravitreal injections are used to target age-related macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusion, and diabetic retinopathy. They deliver a high concentration of a drug into the jelly of the eye that targets the sensitive tissues inside.
Retinal lasers are used to target precise locations in the retina in order to treat several conditions, including diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusion, age-related macular degeneration, retinal tears and retinal detachments.
Lensectomy is a technique used to remove either a cataract or the lens from the eye. Depending on the situation, a surgeon may replace the old lens with an intraocular lens implant or leave the eye without a lens.
Scleral Fixation of Intraocular Lens Implant
This procedure involves attaching a lens implant to the wall of the eye. It is performed in specialized cases when a lens is no longer functioning properly.
Pneumatic retinopexy is a way to mend retina detachments, and is popular because it can avoid having to go to the operating room. Depending on your diagnosis, pneumatic retinopexy could be right for you.
Vitrectomy involves removing the jelly of the eye in order to gain access to the back of the eye and the retina. This procedure can be used to treat macular holes, macular puckers, and remove floaters.
A scleral buckle a type of surgery to restore vision. A band of silicone rubber is attached to the eye in order to correct a detached retina. It is one of several ways an ophthalmologist can treat retinal detachments.
Ocular Trauma Repair
Ocular trauma refers to direct damage to the eye, often when hit by a blunt force. Severity can range from minor to major. If you experience ocular trauma of any kind, it’s important to be evaluated.
