Cornea
Pupil
Iris

Function
A transparent layer which bent light onto the retina.
Controls the amount of light entering the eye.
Control the size of pupil

Eye Lens

Refracts and focuses light to form image on the retina.

Choroids

Black-pigmented layer to absorb light and prevent reflection of light in


the eye.

Sclera

Supplies oxygen and nutrients


Tough outermost layer which protects and gives shape to the eyeball.

Retina

Light-sensitive layer where the image is formed in the eye.

3) describe how we see.
