The retina is the most sensitive part of the eye which transforms light into images. The retina is a layer of tissue in the back of the eye which sends images to the brain. In the central part of the retina lies the macula which helps in sharp and detailed vision. Retinal detachment, macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, retinoblastoma, macular pucker, macular hole and floaters etc. are commonly diagnosed retinal problems. Most of the retinal disorders are potentially dangerous and if left untreated, can lead to permanent loss of vision and other complications.
