OPHTHALMOLOGY


Dr. Malone treats conditions of the eye. A Comprehensive Eye Exam assesses the health of the eyes in relation to the overall medical health of the person. Medical and ocular histories are taken. The examination includes visual acuity, pupils, ocular motility and alignment, eyelids and orbit, ocular surface, anterior segment—cornea, iris and lens, intraocular pressure and dilated retinal evaluation. A refraction is the measurement of the optical status of the eyes for glasses or contact lenses.

Common eye conditions treated include visual blurring, eye infections, cataract, glaucoma, dry eye, flashes and floaters, diabetic eye disease, macular degeneration, eye trauma and more.

OPHTHALMIC PLASTIC AND RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY


Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery is a select subspecialty of ophthalmology that is probably the most diverse. OPRS treats of all the tissues around the eye, including the eyelids, the ocular surface, the tear production and tear drainage systems, the orbital fat and other neurovascular structures, the optic nerve, the extraocular muscles, the orbital bones and the midface tissues of the cheeks and forehead. The practice of OPRS involves the disciplines of plastic surgery, dermatology, oncology, endocrinology, neurology, trauma and orthopedic surgery as applied to the eye, orbit and mid-face. Dr. Malone works closely with and receives referrals from specialists in all of these fields. Dr. Malone served as Director of OPRS at Georgetown University Hospital for many years and after 28 years he continues to teach residents and medical students in the Georgetown University Hospital operating room regularly.
