Dr. Martidis is a pioneer in managing macular edema using an injection of corticosteroid medication into the vitreous cavity. He published the first article on the use of this technique in the management of diabetic macular edema as a complication of diabetic retinopathy. He also has broad expertise in the management of other medical retinal conditions (macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusion, central serous retinopathy) and vitreo-retinal surgery (retinal detachment, epiretinal membrane, macular hole).
In his spare time, Dr. Martidis enjoys playing guitar, mountain biking, and spending time with his wife and three children.
