File Name: parts of human eye and their function .zip
The lens is a transparent biconvex structure in the eye that, along with the cornea , helps to refract light to be focused on the retina. By changing shape, it functions to change the focal length of the eye so that it can focus on objects at various distances, thus allowing a sharp real image of the object of interest to be formed on the retina. This adjustment of the lens is known as accommodation see also below.
Human Eye: working of human eye, Persistence of vision, Power of accommodation of human eye, Defects of vision. The Human Eye: It is a natural optical instrument which is used to see the objects by human beings. It is like a camera which has a lens and screen system.
Structure of the Human Eye. The human eye is roughly spherical in shape with a diameter of about 2. It consists of a convex lens made up of living tissues.
Hence, human lenses are living organs contrary to the simple optical lenses. The following table lists the main parts of the human eye and their respective functions. How Pupil Works? For Example, You would have observed that when you come out of the cinema hall after watching the movie in the bright sunlight, your eyes get closed. Here, the pupil of an eye provides a variable aperture, whose size is controlled by iris.
Pupil opens completely when iris is relaxed. Persistence of Vision: It is the time for which the sensation of an object continue in the eye. Power of Accommodation: The ability of the eye lens to adjust its focal length accordingly as the distances is called power of accommodation. Colour Blindness: A person having defective cone cells is not able to distinguish between the different colours.
This defect is known as Colour Blindness. Defects of Vision and their Correction Myopia Short-sightedness : It is a kind of defect in the human eye due to which a person can see near objects clearly but he cannot see the distant objects clearly. Myopia is due to i excessive curvature of the cornea. Correction: Since a concave lens has an ability to diverge incoming rays, it is used to correct this defect of vision.
The image is allowed to format the retina by using a concave lens of suitable power as shown in the given figure.
Hypermetropia Long-sightedness : It is a kind of defect in the human eye due to which, a person can see distant objects properly but cannot see the nearby objects clearly. It happens due to i decrease in the power of eye lens i. A hypermetropic eye has its least distance of distinct vision greater than 25 cm.
Correction: Since a convex lens has the ability to converge incoming rays, it can be used to correct this defect of vision, as you already have seen in the animation. The ray diagram for the corrective measure for a hypermetropic eye is shown in the given figure. Hence, lens formula becomes In case of a concave lens, the image is formed in front of the lens i.
Presbyopia: It is a kind of defect in human eye which occurs due to ageing. It happens due to the following reasons i decrease in flexibility of eye lens. In this, a person may suffer from both myopia and hypermetropia.
Correction: By using a bifocal lens with appropriate power. Bifocal lenses consist of both concave and convex lens, upper position consists of the concave lens and lower portion consists of a convex lens. Astigmatism: It is a kind of defect in human eye due to which a person cannot see focus simultaneously horizontal and vertical lines both. Cataract: Due to the membrane growth over eye lens, the eye lens becomes hazy or even opaque. This leads to a decrease or loss of vision.
This problem is called a cataract. It can be corrected only by surgery. Refraction of light through a prism, Dispersion of white light by a glass prism, Composition of white light, Recombination of spectrum colours, Rainbow.
Refraction of light through a prism: When a ray of light is incident on a rectangular glass slab, after refracting through the slab, it gets displaced laterally. As a result, the emergent ray comes out parallel to the incident ray. Unlike a rectangular slab, the side of a glass prism are inclined at an angle called the angle of prism. Dispersion of white light by a glass prism: The phenomenon of splitting of white light into its seven constituent colours when it passes through a glass prism is called dispersion of white light.
The band of seven colours is called the spectrum. The different component colour of light bends at a different angle with respect to the incident angle.
The violet light bends the least while the red bends most. Composition of white light: White light consists of seven colours i. Monochromatic light: Light consisting of single colour or wavelength is called monochromatic light, example; sodium light.
Polychromatic light: Light consisting of more than two colours or wavelengths is called polychromatic light, example; white light. Recombination of white light: Newton found that when an inverted prism is placed in the path of dispersed light then after passing through the prism, they recombine to form white light. Issac Newton: He was the first, who obtained spectrum of sunlight by using glass prism.
He tried to split the spectrum of white light more by using another similar prism, but he could not get any more colours. He repeated the experiment using second prism in inverted position with respect to the first prism. It allowed all the colours of spectrum to pass through second prism. He found white light emerges on the other side of second prism. Rainbow: It is the spectrum of sunlight in nature. It is formed due to the dispersion of sunlight by the tiny water droplet, present in the atmosphere.
Formation of the rainbow: The water droplets act like small prism. They refract and disperse the incident sunlight, then reflect it internally, and finally refract it again when it comes out of the raindrop. Red colour appears on top and violet at the bottom of rainbow.
A rainbow is always formed in a direction opposite to that of Sun. Appearance of Star Position: It is due to atmospheric refraction of star light. The temperature and density of different layer of atmosphere keeps varying. Hence, we have different medium. Distant star act as point source of light.
It bends towards the normal. Due to this, the apparent position of the star is different from actual position. The star appear higher than its actual position. Twinkling of Star: It is also due to atmospheric refraction.
Distant star act like a point source of light. Hence, the amount of light enters our eyes fluctuate sometimes bright and sometime dim. Why planets do not twinkle? Planets are closer to earth and are seen as extended source of light i. Therefore the total amount of light entering our eyes from all individual point source will nullify the twinkling effect. Why, the duration of day becomes approximately 4 minutes shorter if there is no atmosphere on earth: Actual sun rise happens when it is below the horizon in the morning.
The rays of light from the sun below the horizon reach our eyes because of refraction of light. Similarly, the sun can be seen about few minutes after the actual sun set. Thus the duration of, day time will increase by 4 minutes. This is due to atmospheric refraction. Because of this sun is visible about 2 minutes earlier than actual sunrise and about 2 minutes after the actual sun set. The phenomenon of scattering of light by the colloidal particle gives rise to Tyndall Effect. It can be observed when sunlight passes through a canopy of a dense forest.
The colour of the scattered light depends on the size of the scattering particles. Colour of Sunrise and Sunset: While sunset and sunrise, the colour of the sun and its surroundihg appear red. During sunset and sunrise, the sun is near to horizon, and therefore, the sunlight has to travel larger distance in atmosphere. Due to this, most of the blue light shorter wavelength is scattered away by the particles.
The light of longer wavelength red colour reaches our eye. This is why sun appear red in colour. Why the danger signal or sign is made of red colour? Red colour scatteres the most when strikes the small particle of fog and smoke because it has the maximum wavelength visible spectrum. Hence, from large distance also, we can see the red colour clearly. At noon sun appears white: At noon, the sun is overhead and sunlight would travel shorter distance relatively through the atmosphere.
Hence, at noon, the sun appear white as only little of the blue and violet colours are scattered. Human Eye: It is a wonderful gift of nature to the human body. Human eye is nearly spherical in shape of diameter about 2.
Near Point: The nearest point from eye at which the eye can see clearly without strain is called near point. For normal eye it is 25 cm. Far Point: The farthest point, upto which the eye can see the object clearly is called far point.
For normal eye it is infinity. The range of Vision: Distance between near point and far point of eye is called range of vision. Power of Accommodation: The ability of the eye to see near as well as far objects clearly is called Power of Accommodation.
Members of the animal kingdom use different strategies to detect light and focus it to form images. Human eyes are "camera-type eyes," which means they work like camera lenses focusing light onto film. The cornea and lens of the eye are analogous to the camera lens, while the retina of the eye is like the film. To understand how the eye sees, it helps to know the eye structures and functions:. The coating on the interior back of the eye is called the retina.
Human eye , in humans, specialized sense organ capable of receiving visual images, which are then carried to the brain. The eye is protected from mechanical injury by being enclosed in a socket, or orbit, which is made up of portions of several of the bones of the skull to form a four-sided pyramid, the apex of which points back into the head. Thus, the floor of the orbit is made up of parts of the maxilla, zygomatic, and palatine bones, while the roof is made up of the orbital plate of the frontal bone and, behind this, by the lesser wing of the sphenoid. The optic foramen , the opening through which the optic nerve runs back into the brain and the large ophthalmic artery enters the orbit, is at the nasal side of the apex; the superior orbital fissure is a larger hole through which pass large veins and nerves. These nerves may carry nonvisual sensory messages—e.
Both modes require fibroblast growth factor 2 FGF2. So I'm just drawing that in. Move your left hand to unblock your left eye and the gap re-appears. Melanin, the pigment present in the RPE, reduces the scatter of light to the photoreceptors, shielding, them from excessive light exposure Marmor and, Wolfensberger, This article uses the mammalian eye as a primary model and follows the path that light takes on its journey through the functional eye, detailing the essential components of one of the smallest, yet most complex organs in the body. Our findings therefore suggest a functional role of Fam3c in the regulation of osteoblast differentiation. Palczewski K Chemistry and biology of vision.
Their purpose is to protect the eye from foreign bod- ies and limit the The cornea and lens are the main eye components that refract. (bend) light rays on the.
Your vision is what allows you to see the world around you. You have vision thanks to several components within the eye and brain that work together. These parts include the:.
This dome-shaped layer protects your eye from elements that could cause damage to the inner parts of the eye. There are several layers of the cornea, creating a tough layer that provides additional protection. These layers regenerate very quickly, helping the eye to eliminate damage more easily. The cornea also allows the eye to properly focus on light more effectively.

The human eye is roughly spherical in shape with a diameter of about 2. It consists of a convex lens made up of living tissues.
Special cells called cones and rods are located in the retina. These cells are known as photoreceptors and help absorb light. The majority of the cones are located in the macula, or central area, of the retina.
SESSION 1: ANATOMY OF HUMAN EYE. In this session, you will learn about the parts of human eye. (Fig. ) and their functional connections.
This dome-shaped layer protects your eye from elements that could cause damage to the inner parts of the eye. There are several layers of the cornea, creating a tough layer that provides additional protection. These layers regenerate very quickly, helping the eye to eliminate damage more easily. The cornea also allows the eye to properly focus on light more effectively. Those who are having trouble focusing their eyes properly can have their corneas surgically reshaped to eliminate this problem. Sclera The sclera is commonly referred to as the "whites" of the eye. This is a smooth, white layer on the outside, but the inside is brown and contains grooves that help the tendons of the eye attach properly.
В нем не было ни картин, ни мягкой мебели, ни фикусов в горшках, ни антикварных часов. Здесь все было подчинено одному требованию - эффективности. Стол, накрытый стеклом, и черный кожаный стул были расположены прямо перед громадным венецианским окном. Три шкафа-картотеки стояли в углу рядом с маленьким столиком с французской кофеваркой. Над Форт-Мидом высоко в небе сияла луна, и серебристый свет падал в окно, лишь подчеркивая спартанскую меблировку. Что же я делаю.
Это возмутительно! - взорвался Нуматака. - Каким же образом вы выполните обещание об эксклюзивном… - Не волнуйтесь, - спокойно ответил американец. - Эксклюзивные права у вас. Это я гарантирую. Как только найдется недостающая копия ключа, Цифровая крепость - ваша.
Он попытался что-то сказать, но Сьюзан была полна решимости. Ей хотелось поскорее оказаться в Третьем узле, и она достаточно хорошо изучила своего шефа, чтобы знать: Стратмор никуда не уйдет, пока она не разыщет ключ, спрятанный где-то в компьютере Хейла.
