The Retina Center of the Florida Eye Institute is a dedicated department of the Florida Eye Institute that encompasses the entire third floor of our facility and houses the latest diagnostic and therapeutic equipment for the treatment of retinal disease. State of the art therapies such as Lucentis, Avastin, Eylea, PDT, laser photocoagulation, and Triessence, coupled with cutting edge diagnostics such as the Heidelberg ICG angiography, B-Scan Ultrasonography, and OPTOS Ultra-Widefield Retinal Camera allow for the most advanced treatment of all retinal disease all comfortably and conveniently in the Retina Center of the Florida Eye Insititute. Dr. Baudo, who practices in the Retina Center, is a board certified ophthalmologist who completed a two year fellowship in the treatment of medical and surgical disease of the retina. He is the only full time, fellowship trained retina physician who performs both medical treatments and the full scope of intraocular retinal surgical procedures in Indian River County.
The retina is the inner lining at the back of the eye which is responsible for our vision and works like the film in a camera. The vitreous body is a transparent gel-like substance which fills most of the eyeball behind the colored iris. These areas are involved in diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal detachment, flashes & floaters, injuries, as well as many other problems.
