The eye is like a camera. In a camera, light passes through a lens system and focuses onto the film. The cornea and lens are at the front of the eye and are similar to a camera’s lens system. The retina is located at the back of the eye and is similar to the camera’s film.In the normal eye, light rays of an image pass through the cornea and the lens and are focused directly on the retina to produce a clear image. A normal eye is able to see far and near without the need for vision correction aids.


Refractive Errors

Refractive errors refer to vision problems that occur when light cannot focus onto the retina of the eye. This is caused by the shape of the eye.
