Mars or my retina

Mars or my retina

I just came back from the optometrist. She took a few images of my retina and as I viewed the images (with my eye glasses off and somewhat out of focus) ..... it was interesting to find such similarity to the planet Mars! Of course the out of focus works much better, so take off your glasses to view. Not bad eh? The colour and all, almost looks like one of Percival Lowell drawings, canals and all, even the fovea centralis could pass for Olympus Mons!
