This light passes through the lens (located behind the pupil). This completes refraction by fine tuning the focused light onto the retina . The retina changes the light (energy) into electric impulses that are carried through the optic nerve to the vision center (occipital cortex) of the brain where the image is interpreted. 7 PHYS 112, SP08, Cui Lecture 29, 04/23/08 The Human Eye Accommodation : the process of changing the lens shape as the eye focuses at different distance. ________: the most distance point on which the complete relaxed
