Essilor's Evolution of the Eye Animation

Essilor's Evolution of the Eye Animation

Irreducible Complexity?

The human eye is an incredibly complicated organ, in fact it is the second most complex human organ after the brain. This complexity has led many theorists to argue the proof of a God, or designer through a theory called ‘irreducible complexity’. This is essentially the idea that any component being removed from a system means the entire thing ceases to work.

Lens manufacturer Essilor have recently created a video which looks at this subject. Narrated by scientific communicator Alom Shaha, it discusses how the eye may have evolved from the stigma used by single celled organisms, to the complex and multifaceted human eye we have today.

Considering the intricacy of the eye, advice on protecting your eyes from dangers of modern living is also provided.
