The afferent visual pathway encodes and transmits all aspects of image perception from retina to occipital lobe. A critical feature of this pathway is the topographic organization of the fibers that make up the afferent visual pathway. Knowledge of the anatomy and topography of the afferent visual pathway will aid recognition and localization of specific patterns of visual field defects.
