The Eye

The eye is one of the most complex organisms in the human body – second only to the brain. Despite being just over two centimetres in diameter, human eyes have over 2 million moving parts. They can distinguish over 500 shades of grey, and over 2.7 million colours.

Eye Institute’s doctors are world-renowned experts in human eyes, their function, and the things that can go wrong with them. In this section, you’ll learn all about the eye, and the problems that can affect them, from the people who know best.

All About The Eye

The eye works much like a camera. By focusing images through a series of lenses, our eyes allow us to see the world around us. Learn all about the eye, including how the eye works, the anatomy of the eye, and tips on how to look after your eyes, such as how to use eye drops.

Eye Problems & Symptoms

Human eyes may be highly advanced, but they are still susceptible to a number of problems. Find out about common eye problems, their causes and their symptoms here.

Eye Diseases & Conditions

If you have an eye disease or condition, such as cataracts or glaucoma, there’s no need to worry. Most eye conditions can now be treated or controlled, especially if caught early. Learn what causes many common (and less common) eye diseases and conditions, as well as the signs and symptoms you should look out for.
