A retinal specialist is a sub-specialized ophthalmologist. Additional fellowship training is required to specialize in this area after completing general ophthalmology training. Most retinal specialists limit their practices to diseases and surgery of the retina and vitreous.
The following is a list of the more common diseases of the vitreous and retina. It is not a complete list. If you are one of my patients, I have designed this part of my web site to echo the information that you learned at the office.
- Central Serous Retinopathy
- BRVO – Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion
- CRVO – Central Retinal Vein Occlusion
- CRAO/BRAO – Central Retinal Artery Occlusion/Branch Retinal Artery Occlusion
- Retinal Detachment
- Macular Hole
- ERM – Epiretinal Membrane
- Traction Retinal Detachment (TRD)
