Retinal & Vitrious Diseases

Many conditions can affect the retina and the gel-like vitreous fluid within the eye.  The retina is the back wall of the eye where millions of light-sensitive nerve endings known as rods and cones receive light and transmit impulses through the optic nerve to the brain, where they are interpreted as a visual image.  NuHealth’s ophthalmology team includes specialists at Nassau University Medical Center who focus on caring for patients with such conditions as:

  • Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
  • Branch and Central Retinal Vein Occlusions
  • CMV Retinitis
  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Floaters, Flashes and Posterior Vitreous Detachments
  • Macular Edema (CME)
  • Macular Holes
  • Macular Translocation
  • Melanoma
  • Proliferative Vitreoretinopathy (PVR)
