    The three retinoblastoma specialists I know are all pediatric ophthalmologists, FWIW.

    Thanks guys, I guess it can be done either way. Do either of you know if they did extra training or fellowships? THanks

    The one in my area did retina training at Barnes, and then did some extra training (? a month or so) in pediatric retina (which I suppose includes Rb) up at Associated Retinal Consultants in Beaumont.
