The eye is a complicated structure with several working parts. Each part plays a vital role in allowing us to see. Learn all about the amazing anatomy of your eyes.
How Your Eyes Work
Your eyes are the organs of sight. Each part of the eye has an important role in paving the way for you to see. Learn the steps the eyes must take in order to achieve sight, and what may go wrong along the way.
Your Eyes as You Age
As we get older, our vision will change. We may require more light to see clearly and we may not be able to focus as well as we did when we were younger. Changes in our vision should be monitored to ensure clear vision and healthy eyes, and to catch or slow a developing disease before vision loss occurs.
