Light reflected off an object passes through the cornea.

05

Muscles around the eye contract or relax to adjust the shape of the lens, focusing the light rays.

The rays then reach the retina, where over 100 million light-sensitive cells read them and transmit the image through the optic nerve to the brain.

07

Because the light rays cross while going through the cornea, the retina reads the image upside down—but the brain readjusts so you stay
properly oriented.

Why bother about the ear? Our culture is the result of acts of inscription, reading, interpretation, acts within the domain of vision and visibility.

(S) James Clifford, Writing Culture, 1986

28

For those of us who can see, vision is, of all the modes of perception, the one which is primary and predominant.
