How do we actually see colour through our eyes?

The way in which most of us actually see colour, is through the sensors in the retina of our eyes called rods and cones.
The rods are sensitive to low light and the cones, which require a greater intensity of light, are sensitive to colour. The message is passed to the optic nerve and then on to the brain.

We see colour because of the Rods and Cones in our eyes
