Eyes are the part of human body that play an important role in transmitting information to the brain, detecting light, focusing, and thus helps us to see. Seeing is such an important function in the human body that it usually requires the involvement of around half of our brain. The muscles around the eyes are the most active muscles in the body. Eyes are the most precious sense organ, so do care for them.
