Welcome to South Bay Retina

At South Bay Retina, we combine state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging and therapeutic technologies to provide specialized and compassionate patient-focused-care for diseases that affect the retina and vitreous. Through an integrated and personalized approach to healthcare, Dr. Narain and his dedicated team are able to identify major advances in key areas of ophthalmic research and provide the latest therapies to treat vitreoretinal diseases. Dr. Narain recognizes the importance of continuing medical education in delivering high-quality patient care and embraces opportunities to improve competence and professional performance in the field of ophthalmology.

The retina is essentially an extension of the brain that contains millions of light-sensitive nerve endings and is located in the back of the eye. It’s made up of rods and cones, in addition to the fovea, which is encapsulated in the macula. The macula is responsible for sharp and clear vision. The vitreous is a gel-like substance that fills the cavity between the lens and the retina and helps to support the lens and keep the retina attached. Because these structures are integral to vision, damage or disease to the retina, macula, or vitreous can temporarily or permanently diminish vision. Therefore, any symptoms related to vitreoretinal disease need to be evaluated by a retinal specialist promptly. Symptoms include floaters, flashes, intermittently blurry vision, gradual vision loss, distorted central vision, hazy vision, severe eye pain, and night blindness. It is also important to schedule routine eye exams as disease progression may be detected before symptoms become apparent. Risk factors for retinal diseases include aging, history of diabetes, history of hypertension, high myopia, and previous eye injuries. In many cases, treatment is available to preserve vision and slow the progression of vision deterioration. Treatment methods are developed based on the type of retinal damage and the severity of the condition.
