When light passes into the eye, what is it focused by? Is it the cornea and pupil or the retina and cornea? Please help thankss

  • Science -

    The cornea is the focus unit and it focuses the image on the retina. The pupil doesn't focus; it lets the light in and changes in diameter to accommodate the amount of light needed.
