    • Seeing an object requires the mediation of light to create an image in the retina.
    • And for vision it is also necessary that there should be visual purple behind the retina and an opaque cornea and iris.
    • Lutein is one of the hydroxy carotenoids that make up the macular pigment of human retinas.
    • The chip captures light that enters the eye, and generates an electrical signal that is transmitted to the overlaying neural cells of the retina.
    • As soon as the flash frames started strobing audience retinas, the soundtrack began adding layers of chaotic on-the-scene sound recordings.
    • I watched until my eyes hurt, and when I turned away, a black imprint was left on my retina by light too strong to bear.
    • However, in 1996, scientists at the University of Illinois in Chicago found that astaxanthin protected the retinas of rats exposed to damaging light.
    • The flatter cornea then focuses images farther back inside the eyeball, projecting them on the retina instead of in front of it, as is the case in nearsightedness.
    • He tried to imagine a world with colours and brightness but all he could think of was the feeling he got when he stared directly at a light for too long and it burned a red and blue image on his retina when he closed his eyes.
    • His dissection of the eye yielded the distinction between cornea, retina, iris, and chorioid coat.
    • Light rays bounce off the person and onto the retina through the pupil, so if the pupils are large, more light will enter the eyes, and therefore providing a better image.
    • Greens and reds are bright enough to sting your retinas, but blues and yellows are soft and washed out.
    • The luminous light shone into his retinas and he squinted slightly.
    • The lens works much like a camera, focusing light onto the retina at the back of the eye.
    • In Steven Spielberg's film, Minority Report, every time Tom Cruise walked down a street, advertising billboards scanned his retinas and broadcast personalised ads.
    • However, many deep-sea species have extremely thick retinae with large numbers of visual pigments.
    • Many people with total blindness experience life-long sleeping problems because their retinas are unable to detect light.
    • More than 10 million Americans are thought to have macular degeneration and retinitis pigmentosa, diseases of the retina that often result in blindness.
    • As with similar work in the United States, the prosthetic retina works by passing artificially stimulating the optic nerve, in line with signals from a tiny digital camera mounted on a pair of glasses.
    • The protein of the lens had changed, making it opaque and preventing light from reaching the retina.
