As complex and valuable as our eyes are, people take them for granted and do not understand how they work. A self-sustaining system, the human eye is a natural marvel. So, how exactly do we see? Watch this fascinating video clip on how our eyes work to find out.
Reflected light enters the cornea, aqueous humor, lens, and vitreous humor, then projects onto the retina’s photoreceptors. The photoreceptor impulses converge on the optic nerve, travel to the brain, and transform the impulses into the imagery we are beholding through our eyes.
Our sight is an amazing process that we either take for granted, or wish we could improve through various forms of laser eye corrective surgeries.
