September,22 2014
How does the eye focus light?In order to see clearly, light rays from an object must focus onto the inner back layer of the eye. The eye works like a camera. It has an opening at the front (the pupil), a focusing lens inside (crystalline lens), and a light-sensing portion at the back (the retina). If light rays are not...
