The point at which the rays cross is called the focus or the ____________________. The light is ________________________as it goes into the and as it comes back out.

eyes refracted light focal point
focus see convex

4. Watch video:

a. Below are the steps in how humans see. Arrange them in a chronological order by putting numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) in the “position” column to reflect the right order in which they should be.

Position Steps
When you look at an object, light reflected from the object goes through the pupil of your eye.
Your brain sorts the image out so you see it the right way round.
The cornea and the lens focus the light onto the retina.
An inverted image is formed on the retina. The retina is made of light sensitive cells called photoreceptors.
The iris, a muscle that controls the size of the pupil, allows the correct amount of light to enter your eye.
When the image forms on the photoreceptors in the retina, chemical reactions produce and electrical impulse that travels up the optic nerve to your brain.

b. Fill in the blank: A medical doctor who specialises in examining, diagnosing, and treating eyes and eye diseases is called a/an ____________________.

c. Visual acuity test, visual field test and tonometry test are tests that an ophthalmologist performs on the eye. Match the name of the term to its meaning:

Visual acuity test  ????? A person reads an eye chart to measure how well he or she sees at various distances.
Visual field test  ????? This test determines the fluid pressure inside the eye to evaluate for glaucoma.
Tonometry test  ????? Ophthalmologists use this test to measure side, or peripheral, vision.

Feature in a camera Feature in an eye Use
Retina Receives light

b. Write a paragraph below to compare how the eye and the camera work. Cover the following factors in your answer:

i. Similarities: What features do they have in common? What does each convert the light energy into when it is processed? Which way up does the image form in both?

ii. Differences: How does the lens change in each to produce an image? How do the types of image made by each compare? How are the images captured and kept?

7. With reference to the eye chart explain:

a. 20/20 vision

b. 20/70 vision

8. What is visual impairment?

9. Define these eye problems and state their "cures".

b. Cataracts

c. Strabismus

d. "Sore eyes"/conjunctivitis

e. Colour blindness

10. Fill in the blanks: (Watch the video -

a. ________________ is the bending of light when it passes through a transparent medium such as glass, lens or water.

b. The refractive errors are _______________, ___________________, ____________ and _______________.

c. _________________is also known as near-sightedness. People with this have eyes that are a little longer than normal, measuring from the front of the eyeball to the back. Therefore, light focuses in front of the retina instead of on it.

d. ___________________ is also known as farsightedness. People with this have trouble focusing on things close up because their eyes are too "short" from front to back. Therefore, light focuses behind the retina instead of on it, causing blurry vision.

e. _____________________ is a condition in which your eye isn’t completely round. Therefore, light gets bent more in one direction than another. That means only part of an object is in focus so things at a distance may look blurry and wavy.

f. _________________ is the normal loss of near focusing ability that occurs with age. Most people begin to notice the effects of presbyopia sometime after age 40, when they start having trouble seeing small print clearly.

g. Read Genesis 48:10. Which of the refractive errors did Israel have?

Genesis 48:10 (NKJV)
