Retina Treatment and Recovery

While the cornea is at the front of your eye, the retina is a thin layer of tissue on the inside back well that receives and organizes visual information. It’s this collection of nerve cells that works with the vitreous — the gel-like substance that fills your eye — and optic nerve to allow you to see.

Problems with the retina and vitreous can include tearing, detachment, infection and trauma and these frequently lead to vision loss and even blindness. Our ophthalmologists regularly perform retina treatment and surgery to help correct these problems before they become critical, working to prevent further deterioration and restoring patient sight.
