A super-dense array based on the human eye photoreceptor physiology is proposed. The main purpose of this system is to achieve a high sensitivity in a given direction, while in other angles it can be reduced as it is no needed. This study is a retinal model using individual dipole elements working at 20GHz, used for checking the versatility of the human eye vision for building an imaging array at sub-millimeter frequencies. The gain of the system in terms of the distance to the center is computed for applying it to an image, showing this way the human eye vision with elemental antennas.
