Jason M. Handza, D.O.

Board Certified Ophthalmologist

Fellowship Trained Vitreoretinal Surgeon

   I am a Fellowship trained Board Certified Vitreoretinal Disease Specialist and Surgeon, and for the last 15 years I have been providing the highest quality vitreoretinal care. This includes the accurate diagnosis and management of Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Eye Disease, Retinal Tears and Detachments, Macular Hole Treatment, Epiretinal Membrane Surgery and many other less common conditions. It is our goal at Gulf Coast Retina Specialists to customize our treatment plan to your needs as an individual and unique patient.

   We utilize the most current technology in our practice. This is the cornerstone of a modern medical practice because it enables accurate diagnosis, measurement of response to treatment and long term ongoing management. This combined with professional skill and surgical excellence enables my patients to have the best chance for optimal outcomes. My staff and I provide this care to you in a professional yet personal and caring environment. We utilize state of the art electronic health records (EHR) to facilitate your visit while accurately documenting your history, exam findings, diagnostic testing results and treatment interventions. This can be shared in an efficient way with other medical professionals that you see so they can be completely current on your ocular health, medicine use and treatment plan. This not only provides you with the highest quality of medical care, but also minimizes redundancy and medical errors. 

​   Although I specialize in vitreoretinal disease, I have close relationships with the finest eye care providers in the locally and nationwide who can complement your total eyecare including optical needs, comprehensive eye exams, cataract surgery, glaucoma management and oculoplastic surgery.

   I, along with my staff are excited to welcome you to our practice.
