Vitreo-retina surgeons are ophthalmologists that specialize in surgery on the vitreous, the clear gel-like substance inside the eye and the retina, the back, inner lining of the inside of the eyeball. Your retina captures light and sends the information to the brain to be translated into the images you see. When the retina is diseased or damaged, you may require a vitreo-retina surgeon. Our skilled physicians diagnose and treat many conditions of the retina including macular degeneration, retinal tears and detachment, and diabetic retinopathy.
