Meet Our Retina Specialists

Retina specialists are specialized eye doctors who treat only diseases of the retina. We are medical doctors that are board certified in Ophthalmology, a specialty of medicine/surgery that deals with the diseases of the eye and the surrounding tissues. Because of the many different aspects necessary for the proper function of the eye, ophthalmology has been divided into a number of subspecialties. One of these is the specialty of retina. Becoming a retina specialist requires a two-year fellowship beyond the standard ophthalmology residency.



Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration is caused by the deterioration of the central portion of the retina, the inside back layer of the eye that records the images we see and sends them via the optic nerve from the eye to the brain. The retina’s central portion, known as the macula, is responsible for focusing central vision in the eye, and it controls our ability to read, drive a car, recognize faces or colors, and see objects in fine detail.


Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is a condition that may occur in people who have diabetes. It causes progressive damage to the retina, the light-sensitive lining at the back of the eye. Diabetic retinopathy is a serious sight-threatening complication of diabetes.


Retinal Vascular Disease

Retinal vascular occlusion affects the eye, specifically the retina. The retina is the light-sensitive layer of tissue that lines the back of your eye. It’s covered with special cells called rods and cones that convert light into neural signals and send these signals on to the brain so you can see. The retina is vital for vision.


Retinal Tears and Detachments

Retinal detachment occurs when the retina separates from the back of your eye. This causes loss of vision that can be partial or total, depending on how much of the retina is detached. When your retina becomes detached, its cells may be seriously deprived of oxygen. Retinal detachment is a medical emergency.



Uveitis is broad term that encompasses multiple disorders that involve inflammation of the eye. These conditions may be either infectious uveitis which stems from an ocular or systemic infection or noninfectious.
