The human eye is the organ that gives us the sense of sight to which we see the world around us. The eyes are made up of several structures that allow us to determine what we are seeing. We use our eyes to see colors, shapes, and words in just about every activity that we do like working, reading, watching television, walking through the park, and driving our cars. The anatomy of the eye is what gives us what it is that we see and each part of the eye has a specific function that aids in the process of vision. Learn about the parts of the eye and how each one works to interpret everyday objects.
