The retina is the layer in the very back of the eyeball that plays the role of triggering nerve impulses that pass along the optic nerve to the brain. Essentially, this gives your brain the ability to visual perceive what you are looking at. There are many different retinal conditions that can have a serious impact on your vision that you may miss without a yearly eye exam.

The easiest and best description of a retina is that it is the very back layer of the eyeball that uses rods and cones that piece together visual elements as well as dictate our perception of color.
