What is the Eye? (Part 2)

Just How Does That Crazy Eyeball Work? Sharon Kleyne Wants You To Understand the Eye.

Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice America, wants you to have the healthiest eyes on earth. How do you get them? By learning everything there is to know about your eyes and precious eyesight. In the case of the eye, ignorance is never bliss. In this Series, Kleyne hopes to ‘open your eyes’ to the miracle of those two squishy marbles hanging out in their caves on either side of your nose.

“When we ponder what the eye is,” says Sharon Kleyne, “we simultaneously think about how the eye works.” Kleyne says we start with the cornea. That is where light rays come in. It was Shakespeare who wrote that the eyes are the windows of the soul, and that’s fair enough, yet it’s the cornea that is the window of the eye. The cornea also possesses a super power, a refractive power that bends light rays. This refractive power bends the light rays so that they can pass through the pupil, which is at the center of the iris, and that is how the cornea makes it all possible for light to enter the eye. The corner also keeps unwanted particles out of the eye. Without light, there is no sight.

The iris also plays a critical role in the working of the eye. The iris acts like a camera shutter. Manipulating the light that enters the eye, the iris shrinks and expands what is seen. Next, the light rays pass through the natural crystalline lens; the lens is clear and flexible and it acts like a camera lens. It does so by shortening and lengthening width, which allows it to focus the light rays appropriately. In a way, this lens rather acts like those fun house mirrors at carnivals. The lens focuses light through a vitreous humor, which is a substance much like a gel. This gel actually packs the back of the eye and helps it to retain its more or less circular shape. This gel also give essential support to the retina.

Sharon Kleyne describes how the retina takes the image that the cornea puts into focus through the eye’s internal lens and turns it into electrical impulses. These impulses are then carried by the optic nerve to the brain. Kleyne says that you will still be able to see if you don’t know how your eyes work, but it’s smarter to educate yourself. “You only have two eyes,” says Kleyne, “(if you’re lucky) and you shouldn’t ever take them for granted.”

Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, which Kleyne founded more than two decades ago, remains committed to new water research and technology that supplements and replenishes earth’s and the body’s water vapor with 100 percent Trade Secret tissue culture grade water applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device.
