Retina Treatment in Hyderabad

The retina is a layer of cells at the back of the eyeball. This layer detects light entering the eyeball and sends signals to the brain. The most important parts of the retina include the rods and cones, which convert light into electrical signals for the brain, and the macula, which enables you to see details clearly.
