One of the most important aspects of your care is your understanding of your medical condition. At Retina Specialists of Michigan, we are committed to educating you on your specific eye problem.


What is the retina?

The retina is the delicate nerve layer that lines the back of the eye, senses light, and creates impulses that travel through the optic nerve to the brain. There is a small area, called the macula, in the retina that contains special light-sensitive cells. The macula allows us to see fine details clearly.
