eye-anatomy

  1. Sclera- the opaque, white part of the eye
  2. Corneal limbus- the border of the cornea and the sclera
  3. Cornea-the transparent curved front part of the eye that covers the iris, pupil, and anterior chamber. It is the most important part of the eye for focusing light and is the chief refractive tissue.
  4. Iris- a thin, circular structure in the eye, responsible for controlling the diameter and size of the pupils and the amount of light reaching the pupil. “Eye color” is the color of the iris, which can vary between green, blue, or brown.
  5. Pupil-an opening located in the center of the iris that allows light to enter the retina.
  6. Vertebrate retina- a light sensitive tissue lining the inner surface of the eye. The optics of the eye create an image of the visual world on the retina, which serves a similar function as the film in a camera. Light striking the retina initiates a cascade of chemical and electrical events that ultimately trigger nerve impulses. These impulses are sent to various visual centers of the brain through the fibers of the optic nerve.
