What Is A Retina Specialist?
Retina specialists train in the subspecialty of ophthalmology known as vitreo-retinal medicine. They treat conditions involving the retina -- the delicate nerve tissue that lines the back inside wall of the eye responsible for creating an image that is processed by the brain -- and the vitreous -- the jelly-like substance that fills the back of the eye.
