RETINA: thin layer of tissue in the back part of the eye(like wet tissue paper);light sensitive and contains rods and cones; part of the eye most responsible for seeing; turns light waves into nerve signals and sends them to the brain.
SCLERA:the white of the eye, the function is to protect the eye.
VITREOUS HUMOR: transparent; gelatinous body that fills up the space between the lens and the retina; liquid in the back part of the eye.
cilliary body muscles
CILIARY BODY MUSCLES:
:the pigmented part of the eye;the eye color is determined with amount of distribution of melanin
PUPIL: hole through which light passes; its diameter is controlled by the iris in response to the brightness of the light.
transparent body enclosed in an elastic capsule made up of proteins and water; focusses on incoming rays that enter through the pupil into an image on the eye's light sensitive back surface
CORNEA:clear, bulging surface in front of the eye; focuses the light into the eye; primary refractive surface of eye
:in the very back of the eye; transmits visual information from the retina to the brain
