Structure of the retina
Light energy is converted to nerve impulses carried along the optic nerve to the brain
rods and cones lie in a layer outermost in the retina against the pigment epithelium and choroid layer
a layer of bipolar cells and ganglion cells lie innermost in the retina
light has to travel through thickness of the retina before it can strike and activate the rods and cones
