No, apparently there are more than just rods and cones that are active players in how we sense light.
That knowledge could lead to better lighting systems, including computer screens, and insights into diseases of the eye. To me, sight is really amazing. Almost magical like. I mean, that these cells sense electromagnetic radiation, and then that information goes to the brain where it constructs images is truly incredible.

That's a good find. I clicked one of the links in the text and this page came up: http://researchroadmap.mssm.edu/

There's a link under Research 411 called Questions. Maybe they'll be good for some answers.

Non of the doctors want to discuss research expect Dr. Contard. He is also a PHD researcher. That tells me their limited. I should ask Rosen because someone at NY Eye and Ear probably does research. They are one of the top eye hospital in America. People come from all over to see Dr. Rosen. I still miss Dr. Koser and no can replace him. He was good surgeon and person.
I found this. https://www.nyee.edu/research

I'm guessing they don't want to discuss it because they're not up on it, and wouldn't know how to respond to what your talking about.
Doctors don't like to say - "I don't know".

I do too, and they'll have to know what all is involved in producing sight to be able to do a complete restoration.
This is a step in that direction.
