  1. The sense of vision and light are required.


  1. The perpendicular drawn at the point of incidence is known as normal.


  1. The angle between the incident ray and the normal is known as angle of incidence.


  1. Angle of reflection.


  1. Regular reflection


  1. In irregular reflection the reflected rays are not parallel.


  1. The objects which give their own light are known as luminous objects e.g., sun.

  1. Cornea protects the interior of the eye from any damage.


  1. Convex lens


  1. The image of an object persists for 1/16th of a second.


  1. The eyes can see nearby and far-off objects clearly by changing the thickness of the eye lens. This is known as accommodation.
