✿⊱╮Retina close up cross section | The retina is the innermost layer of the eye and is composed of several layers of neurons interconnected by synapses. The only neurons that are directly sensitive to light are the photoreceptor cells, rods and cones. Light energy creates an image of the visual world on the retina, triggering nerve impulses that are sent to the visual centers of the brain through the optic nerve.

Could a new treatment restore vision in patients with optic nerve damage?

Eyes are perhaps the most beautiful part of your body, and they come in many attractive shades, varying from the darkest of browns to the lightest of blues. However, there do exist some rare eye colors that occur in some chosen people.
