Ever wonder how such small things like eyes can be your window to see everything? The anatomy of eyes have been of important lesson in many subjects such as biology and physics. And if you are looking for eye diagrams to use in those lesson, you have stopped by the right page. We have a bunch of human eye diagrams that you can save for free! The human eye has been called the most complex organ in our body. There are sure many parts that you have to know if you are learning about human’s eye anatomy. First diagram is posted right below!
The eye is our organ of sight which shape is slightly asymmetrical globe, about an inch in diameter. It has a number of components which include but are not limited to the cornea, iris, pupil, lens, retina, macula, optic nerve, choroid and vitreous. Just behind the iris and pupil lies the lens, which helps focus light on the back of your eye. Most of the eye is filled with a clear gel called the vitreous. Light projects through your pupil and lens to the back of the eye. The inside lining of the eye is covered by special light-sensing cells that are collectively called the retina. It converts light into electrical impulses. Behind the eye, your optic nerve carries these impulses to the brain. The macula is a small extra-sensitive area in the retina that gives you central vision. More detailed eye illustration is in the following human eye diagrams.
And if you somehow wonder why people’s eye color are different, it is because eye color is created by the amount and type of pigment in the iris. Multiple genes inherited from each parent determine a person’s eye color. The outer covering of the eyeball consists of a relatively tough, white layer called the sclera (or white of the eye). Near the front of the eye, in the area protected by the eyelids, the sclera is covered by a thin, transparent membrane (conjunctiva), which runs to the edge of the cornea. The conjunctiva also covers the moist back surface of the eyelids and eyeballs. More diagrams are provided as follows.
All these diagrams are free to be saved. We also provide you with the other kinds of anatomical diagrams that you can find in the other posts in this site. Don’t forget to share this post to your
