Light and Eyeballs

As with hearing, we’ll start out the section on visual perception with discussions of the physics of light and the anatomy of the eyeballs. In this chapter, we will be discussing the basics of our visual perception from the physics of light, the path of light through our eyes, to how the light is transcribed in our retina. We will also learn about the complexity of our retina regarding the retinal network, different retinal cells, and their functions.
