The eye has a number of components which include the cornea, iris, pupil, lens, retina, macula, optic nerve, choroid and vitreous. If you look carefully on your own eye, a tough white covering called the sclera protects the eye. At the front of the eye is the cornea which allows light to enter the eye. The iris is the colored part of the eye that contracts and expands so the pupil can let just the right amount of light into the eye.
The light is directed by the pupil to the lens. Nerve fibers in the retina carry images to the brain through the optic nerve. The inside lining of the eye is covered by special light-sensing cells that are collectively called the retina. It converts light into electrical impulses. Behind the eye, your optic nerve carries these impulses to the brain. The macula is a small extra-sensitive area in the retina that gives you central vision. The following eye diagrams are provided without the labels to allow you use it as review or evaluation sheets.
Most of the eye is filled with a clear gel called the vitreous. Light projects through pupil and lens to the back of the eye. Save and print all of these diagrams for your biology study! More collection of amazing diagrams is available in our site, just look it up on the key word search!
