  • Allegory Of The Cave Analysis

    In Plato's "The Allegory of the Cave," he suggests that there are two different forms of vision, a "mind's eye" and a "bodily eye." The "bodily eye" is a metaphor for the senses. While inside the cave, the prisoners function only with this eye. The "mind's eye" is a higher level of thinking, and is mobilized only when the prisoner is released into the outside world. This eye does not exist within the cave; it only exists in the real, perfect world. The "bodily eye" relies on sensory perceptions ...

Behind the sclera is a watery fluid called the aqueous ...

  • Glaucoma Eye Vision Fluid

    Glaucoma Glaucoma is a group of eye disorders that cause blindness by hurting the optic nerve, which is the large nerve that is responsible for vision. In glaucoma, the optic nerve damage is related to a change in the fluid pressure that circulates around the eyeball. In many cases, Glaucoma occurs when the eye's fluid pressure is high, but it can also occur when the pressure is measured as normal. Fluid circulating inside the front portion of the eye is produced by a structure called the ciliar...

    How do we see? Most people would just say that we see with our eyes and this is true but it is also more complicated than that. In some ways the eye is a bit like a camera that sends images to our brain but it is very sensitive and can be easily damaged. The eye itself is a very compact and complex apparatus. The eye is only around 25 mm wide and deep and slightly less in height. A complex set of 6 muscles (known as the extra ocular muscles) attached to the outside of the eye help it to move in...
