How the Eye Works

How the Eye Works

Anatomy of the Eye

The eye is a complex sensory organ specialized for the gathering of visual information and gives us the sense of sight, allowing us to learn more about the world than do any of our other five senses.


Class Adopts Armenian School

For the second year in a row, Mariam Samoniantz’s 9th grade homeroom class at Mesrobian School emptied spare change from pockets, purses, and wallets into a large jar each day for three months to provide eye screenings and eye heath education for their peers around the globe at Yerevan School No. 105. “I felt good knowing that my small change benefited another Armenian in a significant way,” said 9th grader Nora Gourdikian.

Eye Professionals

An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who is qualified by lengthy medical education, training and experience to diagnose, treat and manage all eye and visual system problems, and is licensed by a state regulatory board to practice medicine and surgery.


Jose Feliciano

Jose Feliciano, who was born permanently blind due to congenital glaucoma, has influenced popular music for more than two generations and acts as a presence who has bridged musical styles in a way that has never been equaled. Feliciano is recognized as the first Latin Artist to cross over into the English music market, opening the doors for other artists who now play an important role in the American music industry. Feliciano has been acclaimed by critics around the world as “the greatest living guitarist” and referred to as “the Picasso of his Realm.” His accomplishments are highly celebrated, being awarded over 45 Gold and Platinum records and winning 19 Grammy nominations.
