Interesting Facts about the Anatomy of the Eye

Eyes begin to develop just three weeks after fertilisation, and during these embryonic developments the eye starts its formation from the cells of the neural tube. Once born however, an infant will continue to learn to focus and while infants are able to focus at any distance, at first they do not have very good control of their ciliary muscles. This therefore means that during the first 2 months of life they may not focus accurately.

Why do we blink? Blinking without really realising it is essential in maintaining our vision and keeping our eyes healthy. Blinking helps move tears over our eyeballs, helping to keep them moist and allowing the eyelids a smooth surface to glide across.

The anatomy of the eye. The eyes themselves sit inside the orbital bones of the skull and are surrounded by cushioning pads of fat within the orbital socket. Nerve signals that contain visual information are transmitted through the optic nerve to the brain and it's the extraocular muscles that move the eye in its different directions. Humans have two eyes facing forward because that giving us stereovision, where the eye and brain anatomy work together to make sense out of an image and give us depth perception. Vision is one of the most used of the human's five senses and is thought of as a primary means of gathering information from our surroundings.

Joanna and her team specialise in providing custom-made ophthalmology and eye anatomy illustrations. From simple diagrams to complex ophthalmology anatomy, the team are readily able to advise you on your project.
