Comprehensive Care for Conditions Affecting the Retina and Vitreous

The retina is a light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye that converts images to electric signals. Retinal diseases range from tears in the retina to diseases like age-related macular degeneration. Some of these diseases can lead to complete vision loss.

Retinal diseases can be genetic or can occur through injury to the eye, the natural aging process or by other conditions. There are several symptoms associated with retinal diseases such as loss of vision, distorted or blurred vision, loss of peripheral vision or the appearance of floaters.

Our USC Roski Eye Institute specialists offer medical and surgical treatments for macular disease and a wide range of conditions that affect the retina and vitreous, including:

  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Dry age-related macular degeneration (dry AMD)
  • Melanoma
  • Retinal tears and retinal detachments
  • Retinitis pigmentosa
  • Uveitis (inflammation of the eye)
  • Wet (neovascular) age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD)

Why Choose Us For Retina Treatment

Our retinal surgeons are fellowship-trained experts in complex retinal surgery.

Our retinal surgeons offer endoscopic vitreoretinal surgery, a highly sophisticated camera-guided procedure.

We established the USC Retinal Degeneration Center to provide comprehensive ophthalmic care to patients with inherited retinal degenerative diseases and to develop novel treatments for these conditions.
