The retina is the nerve layer that lines the back of the eye. Its function is to sense light, capture all the images that we see, and send the information through the optic nerve to the brain. A retinal evaluation requires a thorough dilated examination of the eye and often requires obtaining images of the retina using multiple imaging modalities. The medical and surgical procedures performed by retina specialists are extremely delicate and range from in-office injections to highly technical surgeries conducted in the operating room.
