Have you ever wondered how our eyes have formed over millions of years of evolution? Scientists have studied the functions and natural engineering of the human eye for centuries with little more than guesses as to how it came to be the way it is today.
These days, we’re starting to truly understand how living beings developed sight from nothing through the process of natural selection. It may seem unbelievable that the complexities of the eye simply worked themselves out in evolution. If you too are curious about how vision has evolved throughout the history of life, read on and find out.
Amongst other things, you will learn that our camera-style eye has wondrous ancient roots and that before we acquired the essentials necessary to operate as a crucial visual organ, it served to detect light for modulating our long-ago ancestors’ circadian rhythms.
