It is a continuation of the optic nerve and runs from the optic chiasm (where half of the information from each eye crosses sides, and half stays on the same side) to the lateral geniculate nucleus. The right optic tract consists of temporal retinal fibers from the right eye and nasal retinal fibers from the left eye; conversely, the left optic tract consists of temporal retinal fibers from the left eye and nasal retinal fibers from the right eye.
