The Visual System and the Eye

The eyes together with their connecting pathways to the brain form the visual system. It detects and interprets information from visible light to build a representation of the surrounding environment. In the eye, the cornea bends light rays and is primarily responsible for focusing the image on the retina. The lens behind the cornea inverts the image top to bottom and right to left. The retina, a sensory surface inside the back of the eye, is the structure that translates light into nerve signals, and enables us to see under conditions that range from dark to sunlight, discriminate colours, and provide a high degree of visual precision. Most projections from the retina travel via the optic nerve to a part of the thalamus called the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN), deep in the centre of the brain.
