The human eye is like a camera. It has an adjustable opening to let in light (the pupil); a lens which focuses the light waves to form an image; and a sensitive film (the retina) on which the image is recorded. Inside each human eye are about 130,000,000 light - sensitive cells. When light falls on one of these cells, it causes a quick chemical change within the cell. This change starts an impulse in a message that travels through the optic nerve to the "seeing" part of the brain. The brain has learned to know what this message means so we know what we are seeing. The eye Is shaped like a ball, with a slight bulge at the front. At the center of this bulge is a hole called the "pupil". It looks black because it opens into the dark inside of the eye. Light passes through the pupil to the "lens". The lens focuses the light, forming a picture at the back of the eyeball. Here, instead of fllm as in a camera, is a screen of light- sensitive cells, called the "retina". Around the pupil is the "iris". It is a doughnut-shaped ring colored blue or green or brown. The iris can change in size like the diaphragm of a camera. In bright light, tiny muscles expand the iris, so that the opening of the pupil is smaller and less light passes into the eyeball. In dim light, the pupil is opened wider and more light is let in. The entire eyeball is surrounded by a strong membrance called the "sclera". The whites of the eyes are part of the sclera. The sclera is transparent where the eyeball bulges in front. This part s called the "cornea". The space Between the cornea and the iris is filled with a clear, salty liquid called the 'aqueous humor". The space is shaped like a lens. It is, in fact, a liquid lens. The eye's other lens is just behind the pupil. You can see what happens when this lens changes shape. When you look at near things, the lens becomes thicker in shape. When you look at distant objects, the lens becomes thinner. Of course there is much more to the eye and to the process of seeing than we have discussed here, but this is a quick, general idea of this remarkable organ. FUN TIME The Riddle Box 1.
