The fovea is a part of your eye.…So fovea centralis, that's a small, dense, cone-packed…area at the back of the eye.…And the fovea is actually Latin for pit,…so think of this as a small, really densely-packed…pit of cones in the back of your eye that allows you to see.…It's the area that really allows you…to have sharp, focused, central vision.…Let's take a look at a diagram here.…Here we can see kind of a cross-section of an eye,…and the fovea actually exists right there.…
