Their sense of sight is thus highly advanced, since, unlike the eyeball, this system does not require the being to focus on a particular point, but can rather absorb everything within its field of vision at once.
I don't have any details beyond that, but that vision (hurr hurr bad pun) came to me just now and I figured I'd throw it out there.
Their ships would probably be very dull-colored and there wouldn't be lots of lights and flashy bits, but what they lose in color, they'll make up for in detail (visually, that is). As for tech level, they would use lots of sonic weaponry, due to its relative invisibility on the normal spectrum of light.
Their homeworld would be generally very dull as well, but oddly bright to humanoid eyes. Very bloomed. Their form would be very white and lanky, with long arms and a freakishly quiet step. Inbetween their 'eyes' would be a more complex series of photophores that would transmit light, much like the skin of a cuttlefish, and this is how they communicate.
