Seeing Your Retina
You can use a dim point of light to cast a shadow of the blood supply of your retina onto the retina itself. This will allow you to see the blood supply of your retina, and even your blind spot. Follow instructions closely! The experiments in The Exploratorium Snacks Online were designed with safety and success in mind. But even the simplest activity or the most common materials can be harmful when mishandled or misused. Use common sense whenever you're exploring or experimenting.
