Understanding the anatomy of the human eye helps us to appreciate the complexities and intricacies of its function. Our eyes, being only 2.5cm in diameter, serves one of the most important functions of the body. The eyes have several functioning parts, all of which work together to help us see. Here’s how they work.
How the Eyes Work
The first step in understanding the anatomy of the human eye is to first learn how the eyes work.
Our eyes function like cameras that process the light reflected off surfaces in order to create images that we can see and understand ourselves. The iris controls the magnitude of the pupil. This is exhibited when the light entering our eyes is too bright or strong, our iris reduces pupil size, and the opposite happens when it is dark.
