Here is my best explanation:

'this helps one to see' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'wine son overlooked' is the subsidiary indication.

'wine' becomes 'retsina' (type of Greek wine).

'son' becomes 's'.

'overlooked' indicates named letters should be taken away.

'retsina' with 's' removed is 'retina'.
