DR. TWEITO RETINA SURGEON SPOTLIGHT:
I am originally from Hutchinson, Kansas,
where my father was a pediatrician. We
often vacationed in Florida, and one of
my fondest childhood memories was him
taking us to see the initial launch of the
space shuttle Columbia. I am enjoying living
on the Space Coast and creating similar
memories with my wife and children.
I graduated with an Engineering Degree from
Northwestern University, but my heart led me
to pursue medicine, so I returned to attend
the University of Kansas School of Medicine. I
completed my Internal Medicine Internship at
the UF Health/Shands Hospital in Jacksonville,
followed by my Ophthalmology Residency and
Vitreoretinal Fellowship at Ohio State University.
I was in a Retina practice in Las Vegas for twelve
years before joining Florida Retina Specialists.
As a specialist in retinal diseases, it is very
satisfying to be able to reverse the impact of
blinding conditions like retinal detachments or
diabetic eye disease. New advances continue
It’s important to have a good Ophthalmologist
or Retina Surgeon after the age of 60 to
closely monitor your cataracts, macular
degeneration, and overall vision health.
And if you didn’t know this yet, Age-Related
Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of
visual acuity loss in people over the age of 50.
However, there are people of all ages in Brevard
County who need a Retina Specialist for things
like flashes and floaters in their vision, trauma
to the eye, a tear in the retina needing laser
repair, diabetic retinopathy and spontaneous
retinal detachments causing blindness if not
repaired with surgery.
Dr. Frank Venzara, and Dr. Timothy Tweito
at Florida Retina Specialists are world-class
surgeons who provide sight-saving treatments
and surgeries every day.

to be able to improve the lives of my patients
in that way.
