Normal Retina

This slide shows a normal retina for the right eye. The white circular disc is the optic nerve, which transmits visual images from your retina to your brain. The arteries supply your retina with blood and oxygen, and the veins, which are wider than the arteries, take blood away from the retina after it has used the oxygen.
