Like the film of a camera, your retina collects images taken through the lens of your eye. This light-sensitive tissue on the interior wall of the eye sends these images to your brain, enabling you to see.
However, this tissue is also delicate. If it is damaged in any way, your vision suffers. You can damage your retina with injury and illness, though it also occurs as a result of aging.
