    What is the work of macula??

    There is small place in human eye near to blind spot, which is termed as macula or fovea.

    My question is, explain the work of macula in simple words...

    Why it is somewhat down to blind spot, why its is single in one eye, I mean why not to both sides or on the whole retina??

    Please answer all of them or some of them ASAP

    whyonlyme, we have a homework section, which you've never used, where you may assk for help. We do not just do your homework for you. Do not post your homework in the science forums again.

    Thank you.
