Questions to consider after watching the video:
- What do you know about the structure and function of the eye? As you watch the program, think about how the eye perceives the shape, color, distance, and size of an object.
- Watch for examples of how the eye interacts with other body systems.
- Describe how the eye transmits an image to the brain. How does the eye depend on other body systems? Compare the process of vision to a camera. How are they similar and different?
Observe someone reading a book. Note the person's eye movements and whether his or her pupils dilate. Relate these observations to what you know of the eye's structure and function.
