The Retina is as important to a camera as film. With out a retina or film you would just have a camera body with no way for the lens or the cornea to send the image to our brain. The retina is made of several parts and millions of photo receptors called rods and
cones. These rods and cones haver very specific duties and are place very strategically on the central part of the retina. The central part of the retina where all the action happens is is called the macula. Think of the macula as a hang out for all the photo-receptors (rods and cones). now what is important to understand is the the average healthy eyeball has approximately 7 million cones (central) and 130 million rods (surrounding the cones.)
