The capacity of the compound eye to perceive its spatial environment is quantified by determining the number of different pictures that can be reconstructed by its array of retinula cells. We can then decide on the best compromise between an animal's capacity for fine detail and contrast sensitivity. New York: Plenum Press 1969Google Scholar.

Most adult insects and larval hemimetabolous insects normally have a pair of compound eyes, whose structure (Section 2. ) and function in form and motion vision (Section 2. ) are described below in turn. Section 2. covers the molecular and physiological function of photoreceptors and mechanism of regulating light sensitivity before explaining the processes of color vision and polarization vision. Adult insects also typically have three single-lens eyes, called ocelli, whose optics and function are described in Section 2.

A compound eye is a visual organ found in arthropods such as insects and crustaceans. It may consist of thousands of ommatidia, which are tiny independent photoreception units that consist of a cornea, lens, and photoreceptor cells which distinguish. It may consist of thousands of ommatidia, which are tiny independent photoreception units that consist of a cornea, lens, and photoreceptor cells which distinguish brightness and color. The image perceived by the arthropod is a combination of inputs from the numerous ommatidia, which are oriented to point in slightly different directions.

Both the insect compound eye and the human type of eye have lenses and light-sensitive cells that allow the eyes to collect data that a brain can form into an image of the surrounding environment. Where insect eyes have many tiny lenses with one lens per ommatidium, or eye subunit, the human eye has a single large lens. The lens of each ommatidium focuses light on a few light-sensitive cells without any adjustments. Visual acuity is the quality of vision that determines how much detail you can see in a given image.

The compound eyes of insects often exhibit different tiering schemes of rhabdom despite of high degree of structural conservation. Oxford: Clarendon Press; 1975. In all mecopteran species examined, the rhabdoms of ommatidia exhibit a slightly two-tier scheme that the rhabdomeres of R7 and the proximal R8 separately contribute to the distal and proximal part of rhabdom, whereas those of R1–R6.
