We depend on our eyes more than any other sense, however many of us take this precious gift for granted. Without them, we could not experience a beautiful sunset, see the faces of our loved ones, or view the natural marvels of the world. We rely on our eyesight for so much, but most people have only a vague idea of how our eyes work. There are actually many different parts of the eye working together to form a unique self-sustaining system. Though smaller than a ping-pong ball, the eye allows us to see, while cleaning, moisturizing and disinfecting itself at the same time.
