RETINA CENTER - Dedicated to YOU.

The Macular Degeneration and Diabetes Center is a complete dedicated department within Florida Eye Institute that houses the latest diagnostic and therapeutic equipment for the exclusive treatment of retinal disease and low vision.

The retina is the inner lining at the back of the eye responsible for our vision. It functions and works like the film in a camera. The vitreous body is a transparent gel-like substance that fills the eye behind the colored iris. These areas are affected by conditions such as diabetic retinopathymacular degenerationretinal detachmentflashes and floaters, injuries, as well as many other problems.

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 allows for the most advanced treatment, comfortably and conveniently, in one location.
