For Our Referring Physicians

The physicians of The Retina Institute are dedicated to helping patients with vitreous and retina problems. We appreciate you trusting us with the care of your patients.

Preventing vision loss from retinal diseases is our foremost concern. The Retina Institute accepts new patients daily and emergency cases are seen the same day that they are referred.

To meet the growing demand for ophthalmic care, we see patients at 16 locations throughout Missouri and Illinois. The Retina Institute also participates in numerous national studies and clinical trials to enhance patient care. Using the latest treatment techniques and state-of-the-art technology, we are committed to you and the needs of your patients.

To refer a patient to one of our offices, call 314-367-1181 or 1-800-888-0011 to speak with one of our appointment schedulers.
