Jeepers Creepers, Where'd You Get Those Eyes?!

SEEING is Believing! Science Source takes a closer LOOK at the beauty, function, and intricacies of our own EYES. These delicate built-in camera lenses are able to adjust their focus and aperture thousands of times a day without our even being aware of it. Everyday we expose them to allergens, dust, pollen, drying winds, and bacteria yet sometimes all it takes is a split second self-cleaning blink and then we're off LOOKING for our next adventure. Medical science continues to make amazing strides where it is now possible to restore a person's EYESIGHT through the use of telescopic eye implants, which were recently approved by the FDA. In the not too distant future we will see retinal implants help restore partial VISION to folks who fall victim to degenerativediseases like retinitis pigmentosa or macular degeneration. Want to SEE more? Let's LOOK deeply into those amazing eyes.
