In brief: Fovea
The macula is small central portion of the retina.
The center of the macula is the fovea centralis, an area where all of the photoreceptors are cones; there are no rods in the fovea. The fovea is the point of sharpest, most acute visual acuity. This is where we are able to perceive color. Certain conditions can affect the macula and, in turn, one’s central vision. Macular degeneration is one.
