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.



Everyone is so professional, kind and courteous. There is minimal waiting time. All in all, I always have a great experience! A comfortable and welcoming feeling in the office.

Henry D.

All I can say is thank you so very much. I am in town visiting from Southern Indiana. I had symptoms that led me to believe I had a detached retina. I had a vitreous detachment. This office got me in very quickly and the outcome was the best I could have asked for. Dr. Safi was awesome and very nice!

Jesenko Plecic

I've use their service for over 10 year, starting in Lake Mary, Orlando and Oviedo locations. Always a pleasant and clean environment. The staff are very cheery and efficient. Scheduling and wait time are minimal. Doctors are what I expect of professional. Working with my optometrist they have advised and treated my particular medical situation with the utmost care. When my doctor retired a few years ago I was introduce a physician who meet all the qualities, I expected.

Lauralee Quick

Dr. Waite saved my father’s vision in one of his eyes after a bad injury he had. It’s a miracle he can see out of it at all. His vision is nearly perfect now. The skills Dr. Waite has to be able to do what he did are remarkable. We are forever grateful. Thank you!

Taylor Zammit

Amazing staff, Talika ((hope I spell correctly) was able to schedule my husband last minute- everyone there were extremely helpful and patience- Dr Safi was detailed and informative. I live far but would make the drive again. We we’re very impressed. Definitely recommend!

Esther Jimenez

Dr. Safi just arrived here a few months ago and he’s worth waiting for if you are getting routine eye injections as I do. When he performs the treatment, there is literally NO pain whatsoever, and I have been doing this several times per year for about 6 years now. In addition, the typical burning I experienced for about 6 hours afterward is nearly eliminated due to his reduction of the painful liquid used to wash out the eye. This is a “game-changer” for a necessary and otherwise very uncomfortable and painful procedure. He’s my hero! And others need to learn from his practices.

Kristen Kennedy

Dr. Dunn and his staff provided excellent care! He was thorough and explained everything. I left feeling educated and comfortable with my diagnosis. Highly recommend!

Donna B

The staff and Dr Dunn are amazing I have been a patient of Dr Dunn since 2002 he is a very knowledgeable and caring doctor he let's you know what procedure he will be doing and why I so happy I switched from Florida Retina to Central Florida we moved out of state 500 miles away but it is worth it best damm Doctor there is when you find out you have all these eye diseases your scared but when you find a doctor that cares you seem at ease and Dr Dunn makes you feel that way
