Abstract : This study aims to focus on growth pattern as well as overall trend in literature output on retina during 2002-2007. Secondary data collection from a set of retrieved bibliographic records from the literature output in the field of retina from the CD-ROM sources of MEDLINE was studied. The results indicate variability in the authorship pattern, and English language as the major medium in literature output for retina. The contribution of the USA is higher in this subject also in comparison of other countries of the world. The paper also highlights the need of more research in retina-related research.
