Caption: Retina. Artwork of the retina and its branching network of blood vessels (red). The retina is the light-sensitive layer of tissue found inside the eye. The macula (circular red patch, centre right) has the fovea at its centre. The fovea is the site of the greatest concentration of cone cells, cells used for colour vision, making the fovea the most visually-acute area of the retina. The retinal blood vessels enter the eyeball at centre left, emerging through the optic disc, the blind spot of the eye. The optic disc marks the point where the optic nerve meets the retina. This view is typical of that seen through an ophthalmoscope, a device for viewing the inside of the eye.
