Human eye, the organ which gives us the sense of sight and allows us to observe and see the surrounding world. Our eyes are strained in almost every activity we perform, starting right from the morning newspaper review until the time we get to bed. Whether it be reading, working, watching television, writing a letter, driving a car and other countless ways, we strain our eyes just everyday!

The sight is the sense that is valued more than all the rest. Our eyes allows us to see and interpret the shapes, colors and dimensions of objects in the world by processing the light they emit. The eye is able to detect objects when they reflect the light, but it cannot sense objects when there is absence of light.

Below is the basic anatomy of the human eye that will help you to understand the working of the eyes and its function properly.

  • cornea

    Cornea Also known as the “Transparent Front Window” of the eye. It is a thick, nearly circular structure covering the lens. It is an important part of the focusing system of the eye.

    Pupil It is the round black hole in the center of the iris. The pupil expands and contracts depending on the amount of light entering the eye.

  • 1

    Iris It is the colored membrane of the eye, circular in structure responsible for controlling the size of the pupil and thus the amount of light reaching the retina.

  • 2

    Lens A transparent biconvex structure that is located behind the iris. It focuses light rays entering through the pupil in order to form an image on the retina.

  • 3

    Retina It is composed of visual cells and connects the optic nerve to the brain. The retina receives light and sends electrical impulses to the brain that result in sight.

  • 7

    The optic nerve carries electrical impulses from the macula and retina to the processing center of the brain where they are interpreted into clear, colorful sight.

  • scleral-buckle

    Sclera The outer covering of the eyeball consists of a white layer called the sclera. It is covered by a thin, transparent membrane which runs to the edge of the cornea.

  • Choroid

    The choroid, which is also known as the choroidea or choroid coat, is the vascular layer of the eye, containing connective tissue, and lying between the retina and the sclera. It is filled with blood vessels that bring oxygen and nutrients to the eye.

    The fovea is the tiny area that is responsible for our central and sharpest vision. A healthy fovea is the key for reading, watching television, driving, and other activities that require the ability to focus and see the detail.

  • 6

    The ciliary body is the structure in the eye that releases a transparent liquid within the eye. The ciliary body contains the ciliary muscle which changes the shape of the lens when your eyes are trained to focus on something specific.

  • 4

    Macula The macula is responsible for the sharp, straight-ahead vision that is used for seeing fine details, reading, driving, and recognizing faces.

  • 5

    Vitreous Humor is a clear gel like substance that occupies spaces behind the lens and in front of the retina. This liquid processes visual data that is clear enough for light to easily pass through it & most of the humor consists of water.

Henceforth, the time has come to provide a reliable and effective treatment against eye disorders. This is where Jiwadaya Netraprabha comes to your rescue, which not only relieves symptoms of the eyes but nourishes them as well.
