Unusual human eye closeups

Необычные макрофотографии глаз человека

Human vision (visual perception) is the process of psychophysiological processing of images of objects of the surrounding world, carried out by the visual system, and allowing you to get an idea of ​​the size, shape (perspective) and color of objects, their relative position and distance between them. According to various sources, from 80% to more than 90% of information a person receives through vision.

The human eye is a paired sensory organ (organ of the visual system) of a person that has the ability to perceive electromagnetic radiation in the light wavelength range and provides a vision function. The eyes are located in the front of the head and, together with the eyelids, eyelashes and eyebrows, are an important part of the face. The area of ​​the face around the eyes is actively involved in facial expressions. The eye of vertebrate animals is the peripheral part of the visual analyzer, in which the photosensory cells (“neurocytes”) of its retina are the photoreceptor function. The maximum optimum of the daily sensitivity of the human eye falls on the maximum of the continuous spectrum of solar radiation, located in the "green" region of 550 (556) nm. When switching from daylight to twilight, the maximum of light sensitivity moves towards the shortwave part of the spectrum, and objects of red color (for example, poppy) appear black, blue (cornflower) - very light (Purkinje phenomenon).

A series of works by photographer Suren Manvelyan (Your Beautiful Eyes) shows the pupils of the human eye shot in macro mode. The level of detail inside the eye is amazing!
