What is a Retinal Specialist?

A retina specialist is a highly trained medical doctor (MD) and surgeon that has completed extensive training following medical school to diagnose and manage the full spectrum of diseases affecting the retina, macula, and vitreous. All of our physicians have completed 4 years of medical school, 1 year internship, 3 years of Ophthalmology Residency, 1 to 2 years of Vitreo-Retinal Surgical Fellowship and are Board Certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology. Additionally, some of our physicians have pursued additional fellowships in ocular oncology and uveitis.
