The Evolution of theHuman Eye
Sean D. Pitman M.D.
© May. 2007 
 Table of Contents
No discussion of evolution seems complete without bringing up the topic of thehuman eye. Despite its deceptively simple anatomical appearance, the human eye isan incredibly complicated structure. Even in this age of great scientific learning andunderstanding, the full complexity of the human eye has yet to be fully understood. Itseems that with increased learning comes increased amazement in that the complexitythat once seemed approachable continues to be just as incomprehensible as ever, if notmore so. It is well documented that Darwin stood in wonder at the complexity of theeye, even from what little he knew of it in comparison to modern science. And yet,though he could not explain exactly how, he believed that such amazing complexitycould be developed through a naturalistic process of evolution. Very small changes,selected as advantageous, could be passed on and multiplied over many generations toproduce major miracles of complexity… such as the human eye.
