The retina is the tissue lining the back of our eye. Light rays are focused onto the retina through our cornea, pupil and lens. The retina then converts these light rays into impulses that travel to our brain, where they are interpreted as the images we see. A healthy, intact retina is needed for clear vision.
Due to the important role that the retina plays in our vision, retinal damage and disease can cause serious vision problems and even blindness. As with many areas of health, preventing problems from occurring is easier and often more successful than solving these issues after they develop.
If the normal connection between the retina and the brain is damaged, transmission problems will result.
