Cornea – the eye’s front window

The cornea is the transparent layer forming the front of the eye, through which light enters.

The cornea is the front most lens of the eye, it refracts light

The corner shop (cornea) has a great big window.

The cornea refracts light so it is directed to the retina at the back of the eyes chamber 

One of the jobs of the cornea is to initially refract – change the direction – of the light so that it is directed to the retina. Further refraction is achieved by the lens, which focuses the light more accurately onto the retina.
