Interesting retinal peculiarities

1. The respiratory rate of the retina is twice that of the brain.

2. The retina does not require insulin for glucose to enter the cells!

3. In the retina, glycolysis occurs despite having sufficient oxygen supply.

4. The retina is not just a sensory organ. Much of the image processing occurs at the retinal level itself.
