1 Objective In this lab we are simulating the effects of the human eye – using the human eye model we will be experimenting with different lenses and methods of sight. We will be trying to identify and find out methods to cure existing ailments that plague the human eye. In doing so we will also be able to study lenses and be able to work with lenses, especially convex and concave lens. (converging and diverging) 2 Theory The underlying theory of this lab is the ability of sight of the human eye. While we don’t actually deal with how exactly an eye perceives light and the complicated process that produces our vision, we will be dealing with the lenses that help to affect vision (such as exterior as lenses), while also simulating various situations. Using the concave and the convex lenses, we will be able to use the thin lens formulate to the calculate the focal length of the corneal lens in air.

If you will the eye model with water, do you think an image could be formed by the corneal lens within the body of the eye model? Why? I think that an image would be formed, but it would be very blurry at this distance.
