The retina is a light-sensitive layer of tissue in the back of the eye. The front of the eye focuses images onto the retina, which then sends these images to the brain through the optic nerve. Vision can become impaired when the retina is damaged. However, repairing the retina is possible.
The following is some information on surgeries performed by the retina service at the Loma Linda University Eye Institute. For more information on retina surgeries as well as retinal diseases, please visit the American Society of Retina Specialists website.
