eye

/ī/

Noun

The eye is a round sphere about 2.5 centimeters in diameter. A jelly-like fluid inside helps it keep its shape, and a series of muscles control its movement within the eye socket. Information perceived by each eye is sent through the optic nerve to the brain, where it is compiled in order to give us three-dimensional vision.
