What is near point of the eye?
Near point of the Eye is the closest point at which an object can be seen clearly. For a normal eye, the near point lies at 25 cm from the eye (least distance of distinct vision).
Define accommodation of an eye.
The ability of the eye to focus both near and distant objects, by adjusting the focal length is called the accommodation of the eye or the ability of the ciliary muscles to change the focal length of the eye lens is called accommodation.
What is a persistence of vision?
The image of an object seen persists on the retina for 1/16 second even after the removal of the object. This continuance of sensation of an eye for some time is called persistence of vision
All About Human Eye - CBSE Class class 8 - Science
Human eye can be considered as an optical instrument. Light rays coming from the object to be seen enter the eye through Cornea and fall on the eye lens through the pupil of the eye.
The transparent spherical membrane covering the front of the eye.
The coloured diaphragm between the cornea and lens. It gives colour to the eye.
The small hole in the iris.
It is a transparent lens made of a jelly like material. It is a double convex lens forms a real inverted and smaller image of the object on the retina.
These muscles hold the lens in position.
The back surface of the eye. The image is formed on the retina. The retina contains cells called rods and cones to detect colour and intensity of the image.
The point at which the optic nerve leaves the eye. An image formed at this point is not sent to the brain.
A clear liquid region between the cornea and the lens.
The space between eye lens and retina is filled with another liquid called Vitreous humour.
