Eyes and nose. Coloured historicalillustration of a cross-section through the humaneyes and nose. Front is at top.

The lens (a disc-shaped object seen inthe sectioned eye at upper left) lies behind thecornea, focusing light onto the light-sensitiveretina inside the eye. The resulting nerveimpulses are transmitted to the brain via theoptic nerves, which run from the back of the eyesand cross at the chiasma (lower centre). Theair-filled spaces of the paranasal sinuses areseen between the eyes. From Bilder Atlas by Johann Georg Heck, 1860
