Welcome Dr. Manesh Dagli – Medical Retina Specialist

Dr. Manesh Dagli joins the Washington Eye Physicians & Surgeons from the renowned Duke University Eye Center in Durham, North Carolina.

Dr. Dagli is a medical retina specialist with a focus on macular degeneration, diabetic-related eye diseases, and retinal vein occlusions.  He was born and raised in Westchester, NY and attended college at Johns Hopkins University.  After he graduated from college, he spent time conducting research on new treatments for macula degeneration in the ophthalmic labs at the Wilmer Eye Institute; it was there that he discovered a deep interest in the retina.    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.

Dr. Dagli has presented at several national meetings and is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Retinal Specialists.  During his free time he enjoys writing, teaching, and spending time with his family.
