Eyes Blind Spots

Your Eyes have Blind Spots
The exit point where the optic nerve exists your retina (as a single bundle) creates a blind spot in the eye because there are no receptor cells at this point of the retina. Because there is no overlap in the image that our eyes form, we seldom become aware of these blind spots. It is possible for your ophthalmologist to identify the blind spots during an exam when your eye that is not being tested is closed.
