The macula (anatomically fovea), situated 3 mm lateral to the optic disc, is the most sensitive part of visual acuity. The foveola is a central 0.35 mm wide zone in the macula. The inner retinal layers in the margins of the pit are displaced laterally. Figure 3.1 displays the anatomical schematic diagram of the macula.
