Vision is the process through which light stimuli received through the eyes are transformed into a mental image by the brain. It is our sense of sight. This process is accomplished by the visual system, the sensory system that enables vision, which includes the eyes—the sensory organ for vision—and the neuronal visual pathways of the brain, from the retinas to the cerebral cortex.The process of vision requires that light entering the eye be captured by sensors that convert it into neural signals that can be sent to the brain. There, these neuronal messages are processed to generate mental visual representations …
