In brief: Eye parts

The cornea is the window at the front of the eye which focus light and allows it to enter the eye.
Contact lenses rest on the cornea. The macular is the central retinal area of sharper vision and the fovea is the very center of the macula with the sharpest of all vision.

In brief: 3 different eye part

The cornea is the clear window on the front of your eye, behind which is the iris, or colored part.
It is a major part of what focuses light on the retina inside the eye. The macula is the central portion of the retina where the detailed part of your sight occurs. The fovea is the most central and acute portion of the macula.
