The globe is uniquely designed to be transparent thereby allowing light to be focussed on the retina. Stimulated retinal photoreceptors (rods and cones) transmit a signal via retinal ganglion cells to the optic nerve and posterior visual pathway. The extra-ocular muscles attached at specific insertions around each eyeball allow for intricate co-ordinated movements with resulting binocular stereoscopic vision.
