In compliance with the guidelines for protection against COVID-19 (Coronavirus,) Bay Area Retina Associates asks that patients who are scheduled for appointments to please arrive with just one (1) family member or caregiver. This will limit the amount of person-to-person contact in our office. 


All patients will be asked to undergo a temperature check and a covid screening upon arrival. If fever is present, patients must reschedule their appointment.  Please note that a mask or face covering of some type will be required for all patients and guests who enter our office. You may also be asked to wait outside of our office until you can be safely called in for your appointment. Guests will be required to wait in their car until the patient appointment is complete.


The doctors at Bay Area Retina are taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.  We greatly appreciate your cooperation.

Patient Perspective

on Clinical Trials

“My experience with the Studies Department has been very, very good.  I come in and am seen almost immediately.  The doctors have been communicative, and kept me informed.  I responded almost immediately, and the gray I saw in my vision is almost completely gone.”

–  Clinical Trials Patient, Gary T.
