Retinal Care

Understanding the Retina
The retina is the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of our eye. Think of it like film in a camera. Images are captured on the Retina, encoded, and then sent to the brain via the optic nerve. Attached to certain areas of the retina is the vitreous, a gel-like substance that fills the inside of the eye, giving it shape and volume.. A healthy retina is key for clear vision.

Distortions of vision, such as blurred words on a page, a dark spot that appears in the center of vision, or straight lines that appear wavy, can all be signs of a retinal issue.
