Understanding the Retina
The retina is the light-sensitive layer of tissue that lines the inside of your eye and sends visual messages through the optic nerve to your brain. While most of the eye works to focus the world around you, the retina does the job of taking that focused image and relaying it to the brain to be fully processed.
It is important to understand the conditions that affect the retina because, unlike much of the rest of the eye, the retina cannot be repaired or replaced.
A healthy, intact retina is key to clear vision.
