Below is a photograph of the retina of my right eye from a routine exam. Other than being near-sighted, it's normal. The dark spot on the centre-left is the fovea[?], the bright area on the right is the blind spot[?] where the optic nerve connects. Cool stuff.

Of course this means that for the rest of my life I need to remember that if an employer or government uses retina scans for biometric identification, I must use my left eye. Otherwise someone could download this picture and impersonate me.
