In brief: Central retina
The fovea is the dense collection of light receptive cells in the central portion of the retina which allows you to perceive fine details such as print, facial details and any thing small.

In brief: Center of the etina
The retina is the layer of film in the back of the eye that captures light, like film in a camera.
The fovea is the center of the retina and has the highest concentration of photoreceptors. The fovea is responsible for central vision, that is, the ability to read, recognize faces, and watch tv.
