  • Cornea: The clear, dome-shaped surface of the eye which protects the eye and focuses light entering the eye
  • Iris: The colored part of the eye which regulates the amount of entering light
  • Ciliary body: The ring-shaped muscle within the eye that changes the size of the pupil and the shape of the lens when the eye focuses, and is responsible for making the fluid that fills the eye
  • Lens: The clear structure behind the iris that bends light rays to hit the retina at the back of the eye
  • Conjunctiva: The mucous membrane that covers the white part of your eye over the cornea
