Dr. Rama Jager and his team are world class. You won't find another physician with this level of skill and compassion.


Dr. Jager is the most compassionate and capable doctor I've had the pleasure of knowing. My 66 y/o father had floaters in his eye and got an appointment and (painless) laser procedure within the SAME DAY. Dr. Jager took the time to explain what was wrong and gave a clear solution to my dad's problem. The floaters are gone and, more importantly, our family has been given a peace of mind!


Dr. Jager and Byun were awesome! They were very professional and actually cared about my health and vision. The Oak Forest location was by far, fairly priced compared to other local retina specialists. The staff were friendly and the open availability for appointments are immediate. I definitely recommend University Retina. You wont regret it!


I had an eye emergency after cataract surgery that needed to be looked at immediately. Dr. George saw me in the Downers Grove office as soon as I could get there. He gave me the treatment I needed for surgery 5 days later. He and his team are professional experts who treat the patient with kindness and respect. I highly recommend him and his team.
