How the Human Eye Works
1. Light is focused primarily by the cornea — the clear front surface of the eye, which acts like a camera lens.
2. The iris of the eye functions like the diaphragm of a camera, controlling the amount of light reaching the back of the eye by automatically adjusting the size of the pupil (aperture).
3. The eye's crystalline lens is located directly behind the pupil and further focuses light. Through a process called accommodation, this lens helps the eye automatically focus on near and approaching objects, like an autofocus camera lens.
4.Light focused by the cornea and crystalline lens (and limited by the iris and pupil) then reaches the retina — the light-sensitive inner lining of the back of the eye. The retina acts like an electronic image sensor of a digital camera, converting optical images into electronic signals. The optic nerve then transmits these signals to the visual cortex — the part of the brain that controls our sense of sight.

Our Eyes

Eye Growth The average newborn's eyeball is about 18 millimeters in diametre, from front to back(axial lenght) in an infant; the eye grows slightly to a lenght of approximately 19(1/2) millimetres.

The eye continuse to grow, gradually to a lenght of about 24-25 millimetres or about 1 inch in adulthood. The ping-pong ball is about 1(1/2) inch in which makes the average adult eyeball about 2/3 the size of a ping-pong ball.

The eyeball is set in a protective cone-shaped cavity in the skull called the "orbit" or "socket." This bony orbit also enlarges as the eye grows.
Extraocular muscles.
Tthe orbit is surrounded be layers of soft, fatty tissue. These layers protect the eye and enables it to turn easily. Traversing the fatty tissue are three pairs of extraocular muscles, which regulate the motion of each eye: the medical & lateral rectus muscles, the superior & inferior rectus muscles and the superior & inferior oblique muscles.
