Retina & Vitreous

Retina, Vitreous Send Signals to the Brain

The retina is a thin layer of tissue that covers the inside wall at the back of the eye. The retina acts like the film of a camera to capture light signals that are then transmitted via the optic nerve to the brain to create vision.

The vitreous is a gel-like substance that fills the inside of the eye and is attached to the retina.

If you experience damage to your retina or vitreous, Northwest Eye Surgeons will work with your eye care physician and use state-of-the-art diagnostics to assess your condition.
