Retina Surgery and Treatment
What is the retina?
The retina is a delicate layer of light sensitive multi-layered membrane that lines the back of the eye. It can be described as the film of the eye. When this film is damaged with disease, it affects our ability to see. The “macula” is the central area of the retina responsible for our best vision.
Understanding The Retina
The retina is a very complex part of the eye that is responsible for transmitting images through the optic nerve to the brain. It is actually a layer at the back of the eyeball containing cells that are sensitive to light and that trigger nerve impulses. It is like the wallpaper on the back of the eye made up of several layers that contain the rods and cones which are responsible of our black and white and color vision respectively.
