Abstract

Vision begins in photoreceptor outer segments with light captured by opsins in continually synthesized disc membranes. The process by which rod photoreceptor discs are formed has been controversial. In this issue, Ding et al. (2015. J. Cell Biol. http://dx.doi.org/10.1083/jcb.201508093) show conclusively that rod discs are formed by plasma membrane evagination.
