Vitreoretinal Disorders Unit

The retina is a transparent layer of nerve tissue in the back of the eye that functions like the film in a camera, capturing images focused by the structures in the front of the eye. After capturing the images, the retina transmits them to the brain.

The macula is the central part of the retina that is specialized for high-resolution vision and is critical in tasks such as reading, driving, and other activities requiring fine visual discrimination. The vitreous is a jelly-like substance that fills the eye and is frequently implicated in diseases such as retinal tears, retinal detachment, and others.
