About The Retina

Retina Consultants of Houston’s sub-specialized team of board-certified physicians diagnoses and treats a full range of diseases and conditions that affect the eye’s retina and vitreous.

  • The retina is the inner lining of the eye and works like the film in a camera. Light enters the eye and is focused onto the retina, the light-sensing part of the eye. This information is transmitted though the optic nerve to the brain where it is interpreted as the images you see.
  • The macula is the part of the retina responsible for your central vision.
  • The retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) is a layer of cells that support the overlying photoreceptors, the cells that actually sense the light that enters your eye.
  • Underneath the RPE is the choroid, a major blood supply that brings nutrients and oxygen to your retina.
  • The vitreous is a a clear, jelly-like substance that fills the middle of the eye between the lens and the retina.
