What distinguishes The Retina Group of Washington from any other Washington-area practice—and from most groups around the country—is the vast experience and sub-specialty expertise of our retinal physicians and surgeons who are both local and national leaders in treating vitreoretinal diseases.
RGW’s doctors offer several hundred years of collective experience in diagnosing, treating and performing surgeries on the full range of retinal and macular diseases. They are acknowledged to be among the finest in the field and are frequently recognized with professional awards or asked to write articles or make presentations on a variety of industry subjects.

Dr. Weichel did an incredible job on my vitrectomy after a sports accident. Over four years after my surgery, my eye has had no complications and every eye exam I have had since, doctors have expressed how impressive the work done on my eye was.

Giving back to the community is one of RGW's founding principles. Our practice is the leading provider of indigent retinal and macular care in the entire Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. This philanthropic approach, combined with our physicians' support of resident and fellowship education, reflects RGW's commitment to help those less fortunate—and to advance the retinal/macular field by offering training and learning opportunities for qualified physicians.
