of rods increases in these areas. Also, the degree of convergence among the rods and cones increases toward the periphery of the retina. As a result, the visual sensations from images focused on the sides of the retina tend to be blurred compared with those focused on the central portion of the retina.

The bony orbit usually protects the eye, but a forceful blow can displace structures within and around the eye. The suspensory ligaments may tear and the lens dislocated into the posterior cavity, or the retina may pull away from the underlying vascular choroid coat. Once the retina is detached, photoreceptor cells may die because of lack of oxygen and nutrients. Unless such a detached retina is repaired surgically, this injury may cause visual loss or blindness.
