The Optic Pathway
The optic pathway includes the retina, optic nerve, optic chiasm, optic radiations, and occipital cortex (see Figure: Higher visual pathways—lesion sites and corresponding visual field defects.). Damage along the optic pathway causes a variety of visual field defects. The type of field defect can help localize the lesion (see Table: Types of Field Defects).
