The Eye

The retina is the light-sensitive tissue in the back of the eye. The sensory membrane that lines most of the large posterior chamber of the eye. The Retina is composed of several layers including one containing the rods and cones, and functions as the immediate instrument of vision by receiving the image formed by the lens and converting it into chemical and nervous signals which reach the brain by way of the optic nerve.
