Anita Schadlu, M.D.


Dr. Anita Schadlu specializes in the full spectrum of retinal diseases, including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, and ocular inflammation. She has extensive expertise in the surgical and medical treatment of these diseases, and a special interest in the inflammatory disease of the retina and uvea.


She completed her ophthalmology residency and fellowship in uveitis and ocular inflammation at Washington University in St. Louis. Due to many, often severely advanced, cases of ocular inflammation that Dr. Schadlu has seen, she became interested in educating other eye care providers about these difficult conditions. This led to the publication of her book Review of Uveitis, multiple chapters for ophthalmology textbooks, and journal articles.


Dr. Schadlu proceeded with two years of vitreoretinal fellowship training at the world famous Wills Eye Institute. During this rigorous training and thanks to her wonderful mentors, she performed over 1,000 vitreoretinal surgeries and furthered her knowledge of medical retinal diseases.


Her desire to focus on quality patient care drove her to found a practice that reflects her own ideals. She believes that expertise and technology translate into the best possible care only by maintaining a true physician-patient relationship.


Dr. Schadlu is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology. She has authored publications in several peer-reviewed journals including the Archives of Ophthalmology and Current Opinions in Ophthalmology.


Dr. Schadlu and her team are dedicated to making a meaningful difference in her patients' lives by providing outstanding medical care in a personal and compassionate environment.
