Our nervous system is comprised of two types of nerves,

1) Brain and spinal cord (inside the spine) are the Central nervous system.

2) The nerves in the body outside the spinal cord and brain are called peripheral.

The PN forum discusses mostly the Peripheral Nervous system.

The optic nerve is a part of the central nervous system. It is a cranial nerve.

However the eye lids, and tear forming glands are peripheral.
