Our El Centro Retinal Specialists
At California Retina Associates, we are known for our expertise in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases affecting the retina and vitreous. Our passion is helping people affected by conditions like diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, macular edema and retinal detachment preserve their eyesight and reclaim their ocular health. We have three offices located throughout San Diego and the surrounding Southern California areas, including an office in El Centro, California.
Retinal Specialists in El Centro
El Centro is the largest city and the county seat of Imperial Valley (which many people consider synonymous to Imperial County), located in southeastern California. It is about an hour and a half east of San Diego by car, and just across the U.S.-Mexico border from the town of Mexicali. El Centro is a hub for retail, transportation and agriculture in Imperial Valley. Surrounded by thousands of acres of farmland, the farm industry is booming.
El Centro is also the largest American city to sit below sea level (about 50 feet below sea level). More than 44,000 people make their home in El Centro, which boasts over 350 days of sunshine.
As a conduit to the borders of the U.S. and Mexico and California and Arizona, El Centro is the perfect place for California Retina Associates’ third office. We are located on S La Brucherie Road, right off the 8 freeway.
Retinal Specialists Mexicali
The Mexican city of Mexicali is situated on the Mexico-U.S. border. Because of its extremely fertile land, Mexicali and the surrounding areas are a farming hub. Mexicali also sees a lot of tourists that cross the border from the United States to enjoy Mexicali’s shopping, food and entertainment options. Likewise, California Retina Associates sees many patients from Mexicali, who can make the drive to our office in about 40 minutes.
Retinal Specialists Imperial Valley
Many of its residents and visitors use the terms “Imperial Valley” and “Imperial County” interchangeably. Imperial Valley is located below the Salton Sea and above the U.S.-Mexico border. Its economy is based on agriculture. California Retina Associates serves Imperial Valley from its hub in El Centro.

Calexico is Mexicali’s sister city, located just north of the Mexico-U.S. border. Our retinal specialists see many patients that live or work in Calexico.
