Retina Center

 

  • The retina is a series of light-sensitive cells lining the back of the eye, reacting to the incoming light and sending a record of it to the brain via the optic nerve like the film in a camera.  Damage to the retina can have a huge impact on your ability to see and perceive the world around you.
  • We’re proud to have Dr. Howard Lazarus, a leading national and regional retinal specialist, on staff treating patients with diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal detachment and other retinal disorders.

JOHN-KENYON RETINA CENTER

 

To understand how the eye works, imagine a camera. Light enters through the cornea – the clear outside cover that functions like the camera’s lens. The amount of light coming in is controlled by the pupil, which opens and closes like a camera shutter.  The light focuses on the retina, a series of light-sensitive cells lining the back of the eye. The retina is like the camera film, reacting to the incoming light and sending a record of it to the brain via the optic nerve.

Retina conditions can have a huge impact on your ability to see and perceive the world around you.  At the John-Kenyon Retina Center, we’re proud to have Dr. Howard Lazarus, a leading national and regional retinal specialist, to treat patients with diabetic retinopathymacular degeneration, retinal detachment and other retinal disorders. These complex issues require specialized treatment customized to meet each patient’s exact condition. Dr. Lazarus and his team treat each patient individually in order to find the best treatment to maintain or improve vision.
