In brief: Like a camera

It would take too much spce to go piece by piece but it's workings are very similar to that of a camera.

In brief: Eye

The eye functions like a fancy camera.
Light enters the eye through the clear surface called the cornea. It then travels through the crystalline lens, where it is focused to a point on the retina, which acts like film in the camera. The retina converts the light signal into electric impulses, which travel to the brain, where they are interpreted as pictures.
