What is a Retina Specialist?
A retina specialist is an Eye M.D. especially trained to deal with the problems affecting the delicate tissues in the back of the eye, such as the macula, retina and vitreous. The retina lines the back of the eye and “takes the picture” for the eye much like the film in a camera. The center of the retina, called the macula, is responsible for our fine central vision and allows us to read, recognize faces and thread a needle. The cavity in front of the retina and filling most of the eye contains the clear vitreous gel.
Our retinal specialist, Dr. Elman, completed two extra years of rigorous, specialized fellowship training after finishing their ophthalmology residency. He is internationally acclaimed and uniquely qualified to diagnose and treat problems in the back of the eye, such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and retinal detachment. Dr. Elman will evaluate and treat your retinal problems working in consultation and in partnership with your referring doctor.
Your general ophthalmologist or optometrist will continue to see you for glasses and other non-retina related eye conditions. Your referring eye doctor and medical doctors will receive complete notes of each office visit to our office.
