Bees have two, large eyes on the side of the head. They are actually very prominent if you look at a bee up close. However, they have a third less noticible eye. This is located at the top of the head and is actually three small eyes in a cluster. Each eye performs all the tasks a single eye would but face slightly different directions. Here is a diagram and a photograph to help:

Thank you so much for your comprehensive answer! That is really cool!! Especially the third eye, I wish I had one of those.
