The optic nerve, a bundle of over 1 million nerve fibers, is responsible for transmitting nerve signals from the eye to the brain. These nerve signals contain information for processing by the brain. The front surface of the optic nerve, which is visible on the retina, is called the optic disk or optic nerve head.
