“How do your eyes work?” asks Jeff (11)

Jeff

I have tried to make the image below to show you how it works. The eye is complex and is made of lots of different things. For example it has it’s own sets of muscles which can stretch the lens and allow your eye to move. It is filled with a special fluid that allows light to pass through it and gives the whole eyeball a very ‘squashy’ feeling. It is also connected to the brain by something which we call the optic nerve. The optic nerve transfers the electrical signal created by the image to the brain.

You also have two eyes and one of them is more dominant than the other.

Try this little experiment.
Look at an object in the room and then hold a finger out in front of both of both of your eyes and look at the same object. Then close one eye while looking at the object, then open the closed eye and close the open eye. What happens to the object that you are looking at? For one of your eyes the object that you looked at did not move.That is the dominant eye.

Jeff you can make a comment or ask another question.
