  Evolution and the human eye
A frequently raised criticism of evolution in any evolution-creation debate is that of the human eye.
Little was known about mollusks' eyes at the time, and Paley merely treated the blind spots as one of the problems the eye must solve.
All the way to the human eye and hand and immune system and all the other well-engineered machinery by which we, and all other organisms, solve the problems of life...

  Eye - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Such eyes are typically roughly spherical, filled with a transparent gel-like substance called the vitreous humour, with a focusing lens and often an iris which regulates the intensity of the light that enters the eye.
The eyes are automatically rotated to remain fixed on the object, directed by input from the organs of balance near the ears.
He dissected the eyes of animals, and discovering three layers (not two), found that the fluid was of a constant consistency with the lens forming (or congealing) after death, and the surrounding layers were seen to be juxtaposed.

The human eye is a spheroid structure that rests in a bony cavity (socket, or orbit) on the frontal surface of the skull.
The iris is the area of the eye where the pigmentation of the choroid layer, usually brown or blue, is visible because it is not covered by the sclera.
Accessory structures of the eye are the lacrimal gland and its ducts in the upper lid, which bathe the eye with tears, keeping the cornea moist, clean, and brilliant, and drainage ducts that carry the excess moisture to the interior of the nose.

The actual existence of such receptor cells, known as cones, have maximum sensitivities in the red, green, and blue regions of the spectrum, with absorption peaks near 565 nm for red, 535 nm for green and 445 nm for blue.
When the human eye looks at a colored object and a few minutes later at a similar, it cannot tell us from memory whether the colors are different unless the difference is substantial.
The human eye does not function as an instrument for spectral analysis, that means that the same color sensation can be produced by different physical stimulus.

 How many frames per second can the human eye see?
The fact is that the human eye perceives the typical cinema film motion as being fluid at about 18fps, because of its blurring.
If you had a movie with 50 very sharp and crisp images per second, your eye would make out lots of details from time to time and you had the feeling, that the movie is stuttering.
Even though single eye cells (rods and cones) may have their limitations due to their chemical reaction times and due to the distance to the brain, you cannot be sure how they interact or complement or synchronize.

 Diameter of a Human Eye
The human eye is the organ of sight.
Eye formation begins during the end of the third week of development when outgrowths of brain neural tissue, called the optic vesicles, form at the sides of the forebrain region.
During the remainder of the prenatal period, eye structures continue to enlarge, mature and form increasingly complex neural networks with the visual processing regions of the brain.

 Neuroscience for Kids - Vision
Humans are very visual animals...we use our sense of sight to interpret much of the world around us.
retina is the area of the eye that contains the receptors (rods and cones) that respond to light.
The word "pupil" comes from the Latin word "pupa" that means "doll." The use of the word pupil for the center of the eye may have come from the observation that if you look into the eye of another person, a small version of yourself (a "doll") is reflected back.

 Wikipedia:Neutral point of view - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
But human beings disagree about specific cases; for any topic on which there are competing views, each view represents a different idea of what the truth is, and insofar as that view contradicts other views, its adherents believe that the other views are false and therefore not knowledge.
To write from a neutral point of view, one presents controversial views without asserting them; to do that, it generally suffices to present competing views in a way that is more or less acceptable to their adherents, and also to attribute the views to their adherents.
In the case of human beliefs and practices, explanation encompasses not only what motivates individuals who hold these beliefs and practices, but an account of how such beliefs and practices came to be and took shape.

Eye color, or more correctly, iris color is due to variable amounts of eumelanin (brown/fl melanins) and pheomelanin (red/yellow melanins) produced by melanocytes.
When we remove the eye from the orbit, we can see that the eye is a slightly asymmetrical sphere with an approximate sagittal diameter or length of 24 to 25 mm.
Surface membranes cover the eye cup and develop into lens, iris and cornea with the three chambers of fluid filled with aqueous and vitreous humors.

The human lens grows continuously with age, with new cells added on the outside of the lens, resulting in an onion-like layering of cells with age.
Your eye is remarkably efficient, able to produce a signal with only one photon, Though the brain routinely suppresses single photons as noise, and generally you need 2-3 photons over a small area in a short time span to produce a signal (pixel) to the brain.
Your eye utilizes nearly all of the oxygen that reaches it, and is also dependent on glucose (sugar).

 The Human Eye
Darwin was at a loss to explain exactly what was happening, but he proposed a stepwise evolution of the human eye by showing examples of differences in the eyes of other creatures that seemed to be less complex.
With one exception, all the eyes I have so far illustrated have had their photocells in front of the nerves connecting them to the brain.
To say then that the human eye is definite proof of a lack thoughtful design, is a bit presumptuous I would think.

 The Physics Classroom
The human eye is a complex anatomical device that remarkably demonstrates the architectural wonders of the human body.
In bright-light situations, the iris is dilated to reduce the size of the pupil and limit the amount of light which enters the eye; and in dim-light situations, the iris adjusts its size so as to maximize the size of the pupil and increase the amount of light which enters the eye.
An adult eye is typically equipped with 120 million rods which detect the intensity of light and 6 million cones which detect the frequency of light.

 EYE DESIGN BOOK, BIOLOGICAL EYE DESIGN, , eyech2-abc.html
Normally, eye resolution is far less at the edges of the field of view than near the center where most detail is seen.
The pinhole eye design occurs in the eyes of the nautilus, the eyes of a planarian (flat worm) and the eyes of other simple animal forms.
For most insects, the total eye volume required for a scaled-down pinhole design would be much larger for a given angular field than more complex multifaceted eyes taking into account the expected light gathering power and resolution of each facet.

 The human eye cannot spot the offside rule   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
The human eye is unable to detect an offside position during a football match, claims a doctor from Spain in this week's Christmas issue of the BMJ.
To apply the offside rule correctly, the referee must be able to keep at least five moving objects in his visual field at the same time (two players of the attacking team, the last two players of the defending team, and the ball).
This is beyond the capacity of the human eye, especially as these five objects can be anywhere within the defenders' half of the pitch, an area of at least 3200m2, says the author.

 Human eye - toric contact lenses
The optical system of the eye has to focus an image of the world around us onto the retina - a sheet of light sensitive cells within the eye.
Astigmatism is where the optical system of the eye, particularly the front surface of the cornea, has one curvature going across the eye and a different curvature at right angles to this.
An eye with astigmatism does not have a single position of focus where that small distant light can be focussed as a point.
