For the physics unit, I believe that the enduring learning point was how we see.
Knowing how your own body works is essential to keeping it healthy. If someday you wake up and your vision is blurry, you’ll know why, and you’ll be able to get the help needed to fix your vision.
Knowing how eyes work can also help you if you want a career in optometry, optician, ophthalmologist, etc. Not being able to see and not knowing why can be a scary thing, so diagnosing and helping people to choose the right care option for them could be a fantastic thing to spend your time doing.
As stated above, it’s scary not knowing why you can’t see. If you know how your eyes work, you’ll know what’s going wrong. This can be very reassuring, as you’ll then know how to correct your vision.
1- The first website that I found (https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/wilmer/services/cornea/conditions_we_treat/nearsight.html) is that of a hospital. It explains what all the conditions are, as well as how they can diagnose them. It then gives a few treatment options and explains how they happen. This website is especially good for if you’re looking for a permanent fix.
2- The second website (https://www.livescience.com/32559-why-do-we-see-in-color.html), explains the cones in our eyes and how they help us see in colour. It also explains how some cones are different. It tells about how other animals can see more colour, and how some see less. This is an informative website for if you’re curious about colours.
The article that I chose (http://www.annualreviews.org/doi/full/10.1146/annurev-vision-111815-114605) goes very in depth to how we see in 3D. It talks about “interactions between objects, illuminants, and viewers that occupy different locations in space.” This article is very interesting because it goes deeper into the science behind our sight. It also has figures to help you better understand what is being said.
