Retina Specialist


The retina, one of the most important parts of the eye, can be affected by a wide range of diseases

The retina is the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye that converts light into neural signs for the brain to interpret as the images we see.

Retinal disease is a range of disorders that affect the retina, whose early symptoms include:

● sudden appearance of floaters in one’s vision
● blurred vision
● flashes of light in one or both eyes
● loss of vision



Some of the common retinal conditions we treat at City Eye Hospital include:

● age-related macular degeneration (a degenerative condition that affects the central part of the retina called the macula, a part of the eye needed for fine visual tasks such as reading and writing)
● macular hole (a gap in the macula that causes a defect or dark spot in the central vision, resulting in the loss of central vision)
● retinal detachment (a serious eye condition in which the retina separates from the inner lining of the eye and can lead to rapid and permanent blindness)
● diabetic retinopathy (a disorder of the retinal blood vessels caused by elevated blood sugar)



The retina specialists at City Eye Hospital diagnose, manage and treat diseases that affect the retina and the vitreous. The middle of the eye is filled with a clear gel called vitreous that is attached to the retina.
