For over 50 years, The Eye Clinic has prided itself on being the leading provider of comprehensive eye care in Southwest Louisiana. In keeping with that standard of excellence, the group is thrilled to announce the opening of the Retina Center at The Eye Clinic and to welcome retina specialist, Dr. Jonathan Perkins to their practice.

The Retina Center will focus on providing specialized care for patients with macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal tears, retinal detachment, eye trauma and infections, as well as various other conditions of the retina, macula, and vitreous. 

"We are excited to be able to provide this specialized care here in Southwest Louisiana,” said Michael Betzen, Practice Administrator for The Eye Clinic. "As this region and its needs have grown, we’ve expanded our practice and services accordingly. The Retina Center represents the next phase of that growth.”

Dr. Perkins is a Southwest Louisiana native, originally from DeRidder. His interest in the field of ophthalmology began when he worked as an ophthalmic tech at The Eye Clinic in Lake Charles while earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biological Sciences from McNeese State University. He earned his Doctor of Medicine Degree from Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine in New Orleans, Louisiana. Dr. Perkins completed an internship in Internal Medicine at the University of Oklahoma in Oklahoma City, and a Residency in Ophthalmology at the Dean McGee Eye Institute, also at the University of Oklahoma. He went on to complete a Vitreoretinal Surgery Fellowship at Retina and Vitreous of Texas in Houston. He is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Retina Specialists.

The Eye Clinic’s new Retina Center is located at 2800 1st Ave Suite C, in Lake Charles, adjacent to The Eye Clinic’s full-service office. 

The Eye Clinic is one of the largest eye care practices in the state, with six locations in Southwest Louisiana. With the addition of Dr. Perkins, the group has 15 doctors on staff and offers comprehensive eye health and vision care services for patients of all ages.
