Summary Information: Cones

Cones: Cones are specialized visual receptors located in the retina of the eye. Cones detect color. A high concentration of cones is located on the fovea of the macula. Light flows through the cornea and the pupil onto the lens before it is projected onto the cones on the retina. The cones then transform light into electrical impulses that can be transmitted by the ganglion neurons, which make up the optic nerve, to the nervous system.

There are three types of cones: red-absorbing cones, green-absorbing cones, and blue-absorbing cones. Conditions that can afflict the cones include color blindness.
