What part of the eye helps you see color?



  1. 0 Votes

    Color is perceived by photoreceptor cells called cones in the human eye.  There are three types of cones that respond to light in different ways to allow us to see all the colors we do see.  They are responsible for high acuity vision in bright light; they are less active in the dark, when the other photoreceptor cells, rods, are more important for vision but do not process color.

    Your eyes contain two types of sensor cells deep in the retina called rods and cones. The cones shaped cells detect different wavelengths of light and function best in bright light.
