Anatomy of the Eye

To understand conditions of the eye, it is helpful to understand the anatomy of the eye.

Illinois Retina Associates is the Midwest’s leading practice devoted to diagnosing and treating diseases of the retina, macula and vitreous.¬†Our practice does not provide primary eye care services such as prescribing eyeglasses, evaluating or treating problems involving the front of the eye, or performing cataract and LASIK surgery. Our physicians typically see patients who have been referred by a comprehensive ophthalmologist, optometrist, general practitioner, or endocrinologist who has determined they have a potentially serious disease involving the retina and/or vitreous gel in the back of the eye.
