Specializes in General Practice

Retina specialist: If 'retinopathy' is the diagnosis then a retina specialist is who you need. Your doctors will refer you.

Specializes in Ophthalmology

Retinal specialist: These are handled by retinal specialists (ophthalmologists who concentrate on the back of the eye). Your general ophthalmoolgist can recommend a good one for you. Occasionally the condition is sufficiently rare that you might need a referral to a major medical center with an expert dealing with rare disease.
