* as the.
As the pupil of the eye, the hole or the opening of the uveous
coat, or iris, through which the rays of light pass, and
falling upon the retina, there depict every object in its
natural colour, as upon a piece of white paper. Now the pupil
of the eye being essentially necessary to sight, and easily
injured, it is not only, in common with the other parts,
deeply entrenched in the skull, ramparted with the forehead
and cheek bones, defended by the eyebrows, eyelids, and
eyelashes, and placed so as to be best protected by the hands,
but, by a wonderful mechanism, is contracted or dilated by the
muscular power of the iris, without which an excess of light
would cause instant blindness.
