Peripheral Vision and Central Vision in the Retina


Light rays enter the eye through the
cornea, pupil, and lens. These light rays are focused on the retina, the
light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye. The retina has two areas, the
peripheral retina which gives us our side or wide-angle vision and the macula
the small area at the center of the retina. The macula gives us our pinpoint
vision allowing us to see detail clearly.
