Microscopic structure of the retina

Description
The retina contains sensors (photoreceptors) known as rods and cones.
Rods to see in dim light
Cones produce color vision
From these sensors, information flows through the outer synaptic layer to bipolar cells through the inner synaptic layer to ganglion cells. Axons of these exit as the optic (II) nerve.
