The retina is a thin layer of tissue that lines the back of the eye on the inside. It is located near the optic nerve. The purpose of the retina is to receive light that the lens has focused, convert the light into neural signals, and send these signals on to the brain for visual recognition. Basically, the retina processes a picture from the focused light, and the brain is left to decide what the picture is.

Due to the retina's vital role in vision, damage to it can cause permanent blindness. Certain conditions can prevent the retina from receiving or processing light. This prevents the brain from receiving this information, thus leading to blindness, if left untreated.

Vincent F. Sardi, M.D. has been our retina specialist for over 15 years. Combining office and surgical center treatments and surgeries, we are able to diagnose, monitor and treat the following conditions, amongst others:

- Diabetic Retinopathy
- Macular Degeneration
- Retina Detachment
