Anatomy and Physiology of the Eye
The eye is a sensory organ which allows the reconstruction in our brain of the images of the surrounding reality. For this purpose the eye is structured as a dioptrical apparatus (cornea and lens) which focalize the light becoming from external objects on the retina, the sensitive portion which in turn transforms the incident light in nervous pulses, successively transmitted to the visual cortex in the brain.
