What is a Retina Specialist?

A Retina Specialist is a type of ophthalmologist (eye physician) who specializes in the treatment of disorders of the vitreous and the retina. All of our doctors have completed four years of undergraduate education, four years of medical school, a one year internship, a three year residency in ophthalmology, and an additional two year fellowship in the treatment of vitreoretinal disease. You may be referred to a Retinal Specialist if your eye care provider or medical doctor has determined that you have a condition that requires our expertise.

What does a Retina Specialist treat?

Retina specialists diagnose and treat disorders of the vitreous, retina, and macula. We care for patients with diabetes, including performing diabetic eye examinations and treating diabetic retinopathy and macular edema (swelling of the retina), wet and dry macular degeneration, retinal vein and artery occlusions, complications following cataract surgery, and a wide variety of surgical problems including epiretinal membrane/macular pucker removal, treatment of macular holes, treatment of retinal tears and detachments, and surgery for vitreous hemorrhage (bleeding inside the eye).
