Resolution of an eye according to quick google search seems to be 324 megapixels.

That number is way too high considering that the fovea only subtends about one degree of visual field.

Or are you talking about a stitched image due to saccade?

I am a bit impressed by the exact number, especially with regard to the somewhat fuzzy subject.

That said, human vision in combination with the human brain is certainly a very impressive construct.

Best regards
