Retina            (REH-tih-nah)


A thin tissue lining the innermost wall of the eye. Once light has passed through the iris, it hits the retina and is converted to electrical signals which are carried by the optic nerve to the brain. The outlying parts of the retina are responsible for peripheral vision while the center area, called the macula, is used for fine central vision and color vision.
