Fps Type Question

This is inspired by the constant stream of "what fps is the human eye" topics, I know that eyes don't work like that so I have decided to ask a better question.


What is the bandwidth of the optic nerve?

I know that the working part of the eye is cells that absorb light and turn it into electrical signals but all of those signals are passed through the optic nerve in a data stream of sorts.
So I thought this was a more academically sound question and yes I know that it cannot be answered. You would need to decode the central nervous system and brain to be able to know for sure how much information was being sent and understand it in terms that a bandwidth could be applied to.

But as an academic exercise what would you guess?

I don't think we even know enough to have any sort of educated guess.

I definitely could be wrong, though.
