Eye Resources Presented by Zeiter Eye Medical Group, Inc.

To help you understand more about your eyes and what information sources exist for vision health, we’ve compiled a list of resources below. Use this simple diagram of the eye and these reference websites as a starting point for maintaining your good vision or improving poor vision as well as improving your understanding about vision.

Anatomy of the Eye

Parts of the Eye

Vitreous Gel: A clear gel that fills the inside of the eye.

Optic Nerve: A bundle of more than one million nerve fibers that carries visual messages from the retina to the brain.
Macula: The small sensitive area of the retina that gives central vision. It is located in the center of the retina and contains the fovea.
Fovea: The center of the macula and gives the sharpest vision.
Retina: The light-sensitive tissue lining at the back of the eye. The retina converts light into electrical impulses that are sent to the brain through the optic nerve.
Iris: The colored part of the eye that regulates the amount of light entering the eye.
Lens: A clear part of the eye behind the iris that helps to focus light, or an image, on the retina.
Pupil: The opening at the center of the iris. The iris adjusts the size of the pupil and controls the amount of light that can enter the eye.
Cornea: The clear outer part of the eye’s focusing system located at the front of the eye.
Iris: The colored part of the eye that regulates the amount of light entering the eye.
