In brief: Retina specialist

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

In brief: 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.
