Absorbs all light that does not directly hit a rod or cone cell
Point in the retina (looks like a pinprick) in which cone cells are abundantly concentrated.
Modified end of the dendrites in the optic nerve concentrate here.
Axons of the cells in the fovia centralis meet here to form this nerve
Transmits information gathered by the eye to the brain.

Brain compensates by covering it with an image based on the data it is receiving
Gel like substance in the posterior chamber, gives structure to the eye and maintains its shape.

Controls the shape of the lens
Makes the aqueous humor
