The Fascinating Eye
The eye has fascinated human study from the beginning. An example of this is the early anatomic drawings or Valverde de Amusco, published1560. Valverde was born in the Kingdom of Leon in what is now Spain in about the year 1525 and studied medicine in Padua and Rome.

In current times we have learned a great deal more about the eye and ability to preserve and enhance vision. In modern medicine, the eye was the first to receive a artificial implanted device, the intraocular lens used in cataract surgery. Approximately 5 million are implanted each year in the world. The eye was also the first target in the body of the laser. Countless laser procedures, of various kinds, are done each year.

We have included in this web area some of the general questions that we are commonly asked and information about the eye.
