Dr. Dagli is a medical retina specialist with a focus on macular degeneration, diabetic-related eye diseases, and retinal vein occlusions.

Following this, he pursued a Masters degree in science writing at Johns Hopkins in order to learn how to better inform the public of advances in medicine. Dr. Dagli completed his ophthalmology training at Georgetown University and the Washington Hospital Center. He then completed a medical retina fellowship at Duke University, which exposed him to the newest and most advanced treatments in retinal diseases.
