The conical light-sensitive photoreceptors (rods and cones) in the retina, with rods numbering 30 times more than the cones in the human eye. The photoreceptor cells are involved with color vision and fine detail perception. Cones are concentrated within the macula (where there are no rods), whereas rods mainly reside on the retina’s outer boundaries (with few cones present).
