Eye and Vision
By completing this chapter, you will learn the following list of topics:
|The human eye is an organ that gives us a sense of sight, allowing us to observe and learn about the surrounding world. Light enters the eye, and the cornea and lens focus it onto the retina. It is then processed by the photoreceptors within the retina, and transformed into electrical impulses. These impulses are in turn transmitted via the optic nerve to the visual cortex, the part of the brain that interprets and form an image for you to see.|

This process is called accommodation, which acts like a reflex, using muscles within our eyes to change the shape and optical power of the lens, thereby maintaining clear near vision.
