Author information

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Illinois at Chicago.


When illustrating an eye, it is important for the artist to know the anatomy of its constituent layers, the dimensions of the major ocular structures, and visual characteristics of various tissues in order to produce an accurate representation. In this article, the normal eyeball will be described layer by layer, from the outer sclera to the structures inside with an emphasis on the concerns of the artist when rendering eyes.
