What is a Retina Specialist?

 

A retina specialist is an ophthalmologist who has received special training in the medical and surgical treatment of conditions which involve the retina and vitreous of the eye.  The services of a vitreoretinal specialist may be recommended to a patient with an eye condition which cannot be cared for by a general ophthalmologist. Retina specialists treat a wide range of eye conditions, dealing with both children and adults.



The retina is the light-sensitive tissue in the back of the eye. The macula is the central area of retina that is responsible for the most functional vision. Damage to the retina can lead to blindness or vision interruption such as blurriness or distortion. The vitreous body is a clear gel which fills the space between the retina and the lens. Both structures can be subject to a number of conditions, including problems caused by inherited or congenital conditions, diseases of the eye and trauma to the eye.

Some conditions commonly treated by a retina specialist include: age-related macular degeneration, retinal tears and detachments, flashes of light and floaters, diabetic retinopathy, retinoblastoma, arterial and vein occlusions,macular holes, macular puckers, uveitis, cataract surgery complications,  retinitis pigmentosa and cancers of the eye. Retina specialists also monitor patients with ongoing conditions to determine when action should be taken to address the condition.
