Hi, I have a theoretical question!

So, I’m making an alien/mythological race for a story of mine, and I’m trying to figure out how their eyes function (I know I don’t have to make fiction things have actual science backing them but I really would like to make these creatures as interesting as I can while staying within the boundaries of what makes sense.)

Eye 1 -> I was hoping to make one eye for detecting differences in “values” (how dark or light something is, detecting contrast) and maybe have it be both sensitive to light and able to see in well darkness -like a constantly expanded pupil maybe? Eye 2-> I want it to just detect color, maybe a wider range than humans can but that is all, just color.

Any idea how these eyes would be formed or how they may look? I’d like to have one of each on every creature.
