ANATOMY OF THE EYE

[1/2]

Anatomy of the human eye

The human eye is a complex organ about 1.7 cm in diameter in newborns and 2.3 cm in adults.

 

Cornea

The cornea is the transparent front of the eye covering the iris and the pupil. It is responsible for the main part of the eye’s optical refraction power.

Pupil

The circular opening in the middle of the iris controls the amount of light entering the eye by reducing (in bright light) or enlarging (in low light).

"Eyes are well known

to be the mirror of

your soul. They often

serve to diagnose

further physical

diseases."

Dr. Marina Maslennikova MD

Iris

The iris is the coloured part of the eye surrounding the pupil. It allows the pupil to reduce or enlarge depending on the brightness by expanding or contracting.

Lens

The transparent lens of the eye curved on both sides (biconvex) helps bundle the incidence of light rays on the retina, to allow for sharp vision.
