The collection of ganglion cell axons that extend from the retina to the optic chiasm.
The receptive surface inside the eye that contains the rods and cones.
This structure has a fixed curvature. It bends light rays and is primarily responsible for forming the image on the retina.
The aperture, formed by the iris, that allows light to enter the eye.
A structure in the eye that helps form an image on the retina. Its shape is controlled by the ciliary muscles inside the eye.
These control the shape of the lens.
The circular structure of the eye that provides an opening to form the pupil.
The region of the retina devoid of receptor cells because ganglion cell axons and blood vessels exit the eyeball there.
The central region of the retina, which has a dense concentration of cones. Each central cone has its own ganglion cell.
The area where theses (along with the neural axons) enter and leave the retina forms the blind spot.
