Parts Of Eye

Working of eye

Light falling on the eye passes through the transparent cornea. They continue through the anterior chamber filled with aqueous humor. The light rays get further refracted through the vitreous humor and reach the Fovea of the retina

The cornea and the fluid serves as a

first lens.
Light next passes through the flexible

transparent crystalline lens.
As light falls on both rods and cones their

light sensitive pigment instantly decay and then re- form.
The change send electro-chemical

signals through the optic nerve to the brain, where the signals are interpreted.
