Visual Receptors: Visual receptors are specialized nerve cells, or neurons, located in the retina of the eyeball. The visual receptors include the rods and the cones. Rods detect light, but not color, and cones detect color.
Light flows through the cornea and the pupil onto the lens before it is projected onto the visual receptors on the retina. The visual receptors then transform light into electrical impulses that can be transmitted by the ganglion neurons, which make up the optic nerve, to the nervous system. Conditions that can afflict the visual receptors include color blindness, vitamin A deficiency and night blindness.
