Do we see only that light which hits our pupils?
This is probably a dumb question, but just for the sake of curiosity: Light hits our eyes, and then of course a process occurs inside the eye and in the brain to create “seeing,” but that part of the process is not what I’m after. Do we only see those photons that hit our pupils, or do we see any of the light that hits our irises or the whites of our eyes?
