In 2018, Retina Awareness Week is observed from 24 to 30 September.

The Retina lies at the back of the eye and acts like a film in a camera.

It changes the light or image that enters the eye into a message that is sent via the optic nerve to the brain.

Our colleagues at Retina South Africa have put together this fact sheet about retinal vision loss that you can share.
