Eye Anatomy

The eye is the organ of sight and is often described as a darkroom fitted with a lens consisting of 2 lenses (cornea, lens) with focusing (accommodation) and a diaphragm (pupil).

Its photographic film (retina) where the image is going to be printed is digitised (signal transduction) via a cable (optic nerve) and then is interpreted by the brain. Any abnormality in one of the components of this system may alter its functioning and be the cause of different disorders.
