Intended for all scientists who are interested in the eye and vision particularly for those who are not already specialists in vision. This book comprehensively studies the relationship between structure and function in the eye, often using functional issues as a guide to the most meaningful and important features of the eye's anatomy. Also discusses changes in eye structure and function over different life stages, changes in the understanding of the eye over human history, and surgical procedures used to alter the structure of the eye in beneficial ways.

"This is an elegant and immensely satisfying book on the anatomy and functioning of the human eye. Its breadth and depth make it appropriate for both vision practitioners and upper undergraduates and graduate students interested in vision research. This is a landmark book on the eye which belongs in every biological, optometric and ophthalmological library."
--Howard C. Howland, The Quarterly Review of Biology
