Washington University has expert retina doctors in the St. Louis area. Our physicians use advanced technology to provide the best retinal treatment available. We make sure each of our patients receive compassionate care from our team of retina doctors.
The retina is the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of our eye. Light rays are focused onto the retina through our cornea, pupil and lens. The retina converts the light rays into impulses that travel through the optic nerve to our brain, where they are interpreted as the images we see. Our team of retina doctors offer comprehensive evaluation, diagnostics and treatment for conditions of the retina, including:
- Diabetic complications
- Macular degeneration
- Retinal detachment
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Ocular trauma
- Tumors of the eye
