How the Eye works?
When you look at an object, light rays reflected from the object hit the transparent cornea at the front of your eye. The rays are partly focused and pass through the pupil, which enlarges or constricts depending on light conditions. The lens varies its focusing power for near and distant objects and fine-focuses the rays to create a sharp image on the fovea, the most responsive area of the light-sensitive retina at the back of the eye.
Retina; in the eyes is embedded with two types of special cells which has their own distinctive functions. It is important to know about those, for a cleared view of eye functioning.
Cones and rods cells:
There are two types of light-sensitive cells in the retina: rods and cones. Up to 120 million rods are distributed throughout the retina. Although rods are sensitive to all visible light, they contain only one type of pigment and cannot distinguish colours. They are therefore responsible mainly for night vision. In contrast, the 6.5 million cones provide detailed and colour vision.
Every cone responds to red, green, or blue light, working only in bright light. They are most concentrated in the central part of the retina, the fovea.
