Café Scientifique: Eye Exam: Exploring Degeneration

When you look at something, it’s your retinas that set off a chain reaction that transforms light and color into meaningful pictures. It’s a complicated exchange between our senses, the nervous system and the brain. But what happens when these pathways break down? The degeneration of specific clusters of retinal cells can lead to progressive diseases like glaucoma, distorting images and disrupting life.

Join us as we explore how one of our fundamental senses, vision, is processed, and how the retina acts as a key point in the lightning-fast transfer of images we’ll remember forever.
