Colicchia, G.; Wiesner, H.; Waltner, C.; Zollman, D.
Physics Teacher, v46 n9 p528-531 Dec 2008
We describe a model of the human eye that incorporates a variable converging lens. The model can be easily constructed by students with low-cost materials. It shows in a comprehensible way the functionality of the eye's optical system. Images of near and far objects can be focused. Also, the defects of near and farsighted eyes can be demonstrated.
