Retina Services

The retina is the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye. Light rays are focused onto the retina through the cornea, pupil and lens. The retina converts the light rays into impulses that travel through the optic nerve to the brain, where they are interpreted as images. The retina specialist at Tidewater Eye Centers takes great care in diagnosing and treating problems and diseases of the retina including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and retinal detachment.
