This learning activity teaches the basics of human vision. It covers the topics of basic optics, the structure of the eye, and the effects of the accommodation lens within the eye. It explains how corrective lenses in glasses correct basic vision problems. This activity serves as an opening for more advanced material on aberrometry. An instructor's guide for this activity is available from the Modern Miracle Medical Machines web home page.

This one of a growing set of activities developed by the Kansas State University Physics Education Research group on the physics of modern medicine.
