The retina is the layer of the eye that receives the light and transmits it through the optic nerve to the brain for image processing. It is a very sensitive layer and any damage to it can cause severe loss of vision. There are multiple diseases that we see and treat in the retina ranging from less serious ones such as floaters and choroidal nevi to more serious ones like diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal tears and retinal detachments.
