The letter “R” is for Retina…

How many of you have had your eyes checked and they took pictures of your retina?  Probably not many of you, but I did!  Of course I thought it might be fun to use the images in a future quilt!

What I didn’t know was what the retina actually does for your sight.  The retina is the light-sensitive layer of tissue at the back of the inner eye. It acts like the film in a camera — images come through the eye’s lens and are focused on the retina. The retina then converts these images to electric signals and sends them via the optic nerve to the brain.  Anyone who experiences changes in sharpness or color perception, flashes of lights, floaters, or distortion in vision should get a retinal examination.

  1. Just had this done, for an extra $40.00, because it is no longer covered by insurance thanks to obama tax. Much nicer than having the eyes dialated. You must have been fasinated because your passion is photography! Can’t wait to see the new quilt! The Eyes Have It!

Tell me what you think. I would love to hear from you!
