Light rays enter the eyes through the cornea, pupil and the lens. These light rays are focused on the retina, a light sensitive
tissue lining the back of the eye. The retina has two areas, the peripheral retina and the macula. The macula is a small area
at the center of the retina. The peripheral retina is the large are surrounding the macula. It's the peripheral retina that
gives us our side or wide angle vision. It is the macula that gives us our pinpoint vision and allows us to see detail clearly,
helping us to drive, read, or recognize a face. Watch the video below to get a visual representation of this.
