Retina

Name: Retina
Description: The region of the eye consisting of ten-layered nervous tissue. It is continuous with the OPTIC NERVE and receives images of external objects and transmits visual impulses to the brain. Its outer surface is in contact with the CHOROID and the inner surface with the VITREOUS BODY. The outer-most layer is pigmented, whereas the inner nine layers are transparent.
  • Definition Source: MeSH
