About Us

Retina Rocks was founded as a free, open-source resource to help educate the world’s eye care providers about why the retina rocks! It was created over a 30-year period as an internal teaching collection at Bennett & Bloom Eye Centers in Louisville, KY. In 2019 the collection was donated to seed Retina Rocks with its initial files, and in 2021 became the image bank for the Retina World Congress. It currently contains tens of thousands of multimodal images covering the spectrum of vitreoretinal disorders. Also included are annotated bibliographies for most disorders covering thousands of major publications and studies.
