The eye functions as a small , living camera. The clear cornea and lens of the eye focuses the light on the inner delicate lining of the eye called Retina.
Retina is light sensitive layer of cells at the back of the eye. It converts light into electrical signals which are sent to the brain through optic nerve and the brain interprets them to produce the images that we see. A healthy retina is necessary for good vision.
To examine the retina ophthalmologist will dilate your eyes. To dilate the eyes dilatation drops are instilled in your eyes. A retina specialist then uses a special magnifying lenses to exam your retina. The dilatation will reverse after 4-5 hours.
