What is the Retina?
The retina is the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of our eye. Light rays are focused onto the retina through our cornea, pupil and lens. The retina converts the light rays into impulses that travel through the optic nerve to our brain, where they are interpreted as the images we see.
The doctors at the Texas Eye Institute take great care in diagnosing and treating problems and diseases of the retina including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and retinal detachment. See our retina treatment options.
