    Dr. Conway was educated in Chicago, New Orleans and St. Louis where she did her medical and subspecialty training in ophthalmology and retina. She also did an NIH Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Molecular Biology studying viral diseases of the retina.

    Dr. Conway joined the faculty of the Department of Ophthalmology at the LSU, New Orleans, where she was an Associate Professor of Ophthalmology. She moved to the Tulane University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans as a Professor of Ophthalmology and member of the vitreoretinal service until she accepted a position at the University of Arizona as a Professor of Ophthalmology and member of the Vitreoretinal Service and Uveitis Service.

    Dr. Conway is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, American Uveitis Society, American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, Women in Ophthalmology, The Macula Society and the American Society of Retinal Surgeons. She has spoken internationally in Hong Kong, Central America, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic.

    We are dedicated to the preservation and the restoration of vision through accurate diagnosis and leading edge treatment of retinal diseases and visual defects. Our goal is to provide superior care throughout the entire patient continuum.

    Diabetic Macular Edema forms in patients with diabetic retinopathy. Diabetes can cause new blood vessels to grow in the eyes. These vessels enlarge and then begin to leak, which in turn causes swelling and blurred vision. Diabetic macular edema is the swelling of the retina due to leaking fluid from the blood vessels in the macula. The fluid accumulates in the retina, causing such symptoms as blurry vision, double vision or floaters. Untreated, diabetic macular edema can lead to blindness.

    Focal Vitreomacular Adhesion (back of the eye disease) Focal vitreomacular adhesion is a condition in which the vitreous gel, in the center of the eye, has an abnormally strong adhesion to the retina at the back of the eye. These adhesions can cause vessel and retinal distortion which results in deterioration in the patient's vision. Moreover, vitreomacular adhesion is thought to play a key role in numerous back of the eye conditions such as macular hole formation, and some forms of macular edema. Vitreomacular adhesion is also potentially associated with a much poorer prognosis in certain major eye indications, including diabetic retinopathy and Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
