Fovea

The entire surface of the retina contains nerve cells, but there is a small portion with a diameter of approximately 0.25 mm at the centre of the macula called the fovea centralis where the concentration of cones is greatest.

  • This region is the optimal location for the formation of image detail.
  • The eyes constantly rotate in their sockets to focus images of objects of interest as precisely as possible at this location.
