What is the name of:(a) the curved, transparent front surface of the eye?(b) the light-sensitive layer in the eye?



(a) The name of the curved, transparent front surface of the eye is called the cornea.

(b) The name of the light-sensitive layer in the eye is the retina.


Explanation

Cornea is the front part of the eye-bulging outwards, which is made of a transparent substance, and the outer surface of the cornea is convex in shape. Because of this shape, when the light rays coming from an object enter the eye through the cornea, it just bends or refracts.


Retina is the light-sensitive layer or screen at the back part of the eye and behind the eye-lens where the image is formed.
