The medical-retina specialty finds its origins in the classic 1967 study, The Pathogenesis of Disciform Detachment of the Neuro-epithelium by Dr. J. Donald Gass, which was published initially as a supplemental issue of the American Journal of Ophthalmology. Prior to this milestone in the field, specialists in retina were essentially bucklers, that is, individuals trained to excel in indirect ophthalmoscopy in order to find breaks and to reattach the retina.
