Changing the way that people see the world.


Diabetic Retinopathy

The effect of diabetes on the retina is called diabetic retinopathy. Diabetes damages the circulatory system of the retina at the back of the eye. Tiny blood vessels called capillaries become weak and may leak fluid into the retina resulting in two major medical problems.

Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a condition that affects the macula, which is located in the center of the retina.  The macula is the central portion of the retina that allows us to see fine detail. Any disruption of the macula results in a marked change of vision.

Retinal Detachments

The most common cause of retinal detachment is the normal retraction of the vitreous (the gel-like substance that fills the eye) as we age. This can tear the retina, which will allow fluid to creep beneath it. The fluid causes the retina to separate from the back wall.


"I have been under the care of NRI for over 10 years. They have always employed leading edge technology and procedures in my treatment. The quality of professionalism is unsurpassed thanks to the influence and leadership of Dr Bert Glaser. The most important aspect for me is confidence and trust."

"I have been referring patients to NRI for the past 10 years. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The retina specialists are very experienced and are great about sharing their expertise and communicating in the co-management of our patients. I have trusted many patients, friends, and family members to their care."
