Presentation Transcript

  1. EYE The eye is an extension of the brain

  2. Eye brain proxomity • Can you see : • the optic nerve bundle? • Spinal cord?

  3. Cross section You must know the position of: Retina Lens Cornea Sclerotic Optic nerve Cilary muscles Suspensory ligaments

  4. Retina – receives the image • Full of light receptors which are sensitive to: • Colour • Light levels • Massive blood supply is also needed Fovea is the main focal point and has greatest density of light receptors

  5. Retina receptors • Light receptors are called rods and cone

  6. Focusing on objects • The lens and cornea focus the light on the retina

  7. Focusing • The lens job is to make the rays hit the same point The red rays will be out of focus

  8. Bending light • Light is refracted and bent to focus it as it passes through the lens • Lens thickness can be changed so the amount of bending is changed

  9. Near vision • to bend the light more to focus it • Fat lens needed

  10. Distance vision • Rays enter the eye closer together • Need less bending • Thinner lens needed

  11. Changing lens thickness • Cilary muscles are attached to the lens, when contracted they pull the lens thin • The lens is slightly elastic, its relaxed state is short and fat.

  12. Controlling light levels • Your eye are very sensitive and can be damaged by harsh light. • Your iris controls light allowed into the eye by changing the size of the pupil
