The eye contains photoreceptors, which are modified neurons located on its inner wall. Other parts of the eye provide protective functions or make it possible to move the eyeball. Still other structures serve to focus light entering the eye so that a sharp image is projected onto the receptor cells. Nerve impulses generated when the receptors are stimulated travel along the optic nerves to the brain, which interprets the impulses and creates the sensation of sight.
