Image of the retinaThe retina is the light-sensitive layers of nerve tissue at the back of the eye that receive images and sends them as electric signals through the optic nerve to the brain. Because the retina is essential to vision, many people with retinal diseases usually realize they have a problem when the disease begins affecting the quality of their vision.

At the Moran Eye Center we are leaders and innovators in diagnosing and treating retinal diseases and retinal surgery. We offer quality both medical and surgical treatment plans for retinal diseases.
