The retina is the key to your vision. It is a multi-layered, light sensitive tissue lining the inner surface of the eye. The cornea and lens of the eye create an image of the visual world on the retina just as the lens focuses light on the film in a camera. When light strikes the retina, highly specialized cells called rod and cone photo receptors start a chain of chemical and electrical events that create a nerve impulse. These are sent through the fibers of the optic nerve to the brain where we perceive our most precious gift - sight!
What if the retina malfunctions or becomes attacked by disease? Suddenly your world of vision begins to disappear. While not all eye disease is curable, your best chance for treatment and vision is to immediately see a retina specialists like those at Taylor Retina Center.
