A retina specialist is a highly trained doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases and surgical problems of the retina. The retina is also known as the “back of the eye.” A retina specialist completes many years of training after college. This includes four years of medical school, one year of internal medicine training, three years of residency training in general ophthalmology, and one or two years of additional fellowship training specific to problems of the retina.
