Dr. Luttrull strives to provide the most technologically most up-to-date, safest and most effective treatments available for patients with retinal and macular disorders, with an emphasis on prevention. Dr. Luttrull is  internationally recognized as an innovator in the treatment of retinal diseases. His contributions, including “high-density / low-intensity subthreshold diode MicroPulse* laser” (SDM), are advancing the treatment and understanding of retinal disease. Through his research, Dr. Luttrull has been a pioneer in early and preventive treatment of diabetic retinopathy and developer of first preventive treatments for age-related macular degeneration that reduce the risk of “wet” macular degeneration, slow progression of age-related geographic atrophy, and reduce the risks of visual loss. This new approach to disease prevention is called “Vision Protection Therapy.”

Dr. Luttrull is a life member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology; an “Honor Award” recipient of the American Society of Retinal Specialists; founder of the Ventura County Ophthalmology Society; and founder and Executive Director of LIGHT: The International Retinal Laser Society.

New Office Safety Measures During Coronavirus Pandemic

Dr Luttrull’s office remains open to continue to offer care to our patients necessary to protect their vision through the pandemic.

If you have a cough, cold, or flu symptoms please call the office to reschedule your appointment for a month until you are feeling better.

As you know, the main risk of contracting coronavirus is from coming into contact with infected people, whether they are symptomatic or not. Therefore, limiting your contact with others is important. To help in this regard, please stay in your car when you arrive at the office. Call us to let us know you are here. As soon as the doctor is ready for you, we will call you up to the office and move you through as quickly as possible. By doing this we will limit the office to only 3-4 patients at a time in widely separated areas, minimizing the chance for virus exposure. Additional antiseptic measures have been instituted. Dr. Luttrull will be wearing an N95 mask to maximize your safety, and office staff will be wearing masks as well. If you have a mask, please bring and wear it during your visit. In this way we will help maximize everyone’s safety during this challenging time.
