The retina is the area that lines the back of your eye. The function of the retina is to translate images seen and transmit them to the brain for visual identification. When the retina tears or moves away from the eye wall, a retinal detachment occurs.

First time at RAM will NOT be my last. I cannot say enough great things about RAM Eye Care from all staff to Dr. Ramchander who has such an expertise of the eyes but also exudes a nice personality and professionalism. He truly cares about you and the health of your eyes. Very thorough! A nice office atmosphere also helped with my anxiety. For a smaller office I was pleasantly surprised at the nice selection of eyeglass frames at very reasonable prices compared to other eyeglass places I have been at. I am on a fixed income so this was important to me as I have no eyecare insurance like VSP. I am sorry cannot recall her name helped fit me with a great pair of frames for my new script and I am a hard person to fit for frames. She did not rush me and was very knowledgeable with a long education and history of fitting folks with eyeglasses with a warm and welcoming personality. Top notch all the way!!
