Why do irises have patterns?

Your iris patterns make it possible to use your eyes as an identification that’s even more accurate than using your fingerprints. This is because the patterns are very intricate and quite unique. Not even identical twins have iris patterns that are identical.

What color controls iris?

The color of iris is an important physical characteristic of human beings[1]. It is mainly determined by melanocytes, which form the double-layer posterior pigment epithelium at the back of the iris and the content of melanin in the anterior border layer of the iris stroma.

What is the function of iris adjustment?

An adjustable iris controls the diameter of the beam of light entering the lens system. Both by changing the size of this iris and by moving the lens toward or away from the stage, the diameter and focal point of the cone of light that goes through the specimen can be controlled.

Does the iris have a purpose?

What is the purpose of the iris? The iris controls the size of the pupil, which then determines the amount of light that enters the eye. When in a dark or dim environment, the iris muscles constrict, and the pupil enlarges (or dilates). This allows more light to enter into the eye.

What is the rarest iris pattern?

The Rarest Eye Color Like albinism, heterochromia can occur in both humans and many animals. In one form of heterochromia, called central heterochromia, there is a ring of color around the pupil that is distinctly different from the color of the rest of the iris.

What is the main function of the iris diaphragm?

Iris Diaphragm controls the amount of light reaching the specimen. It is located above the condenser and below the stage. Most high quality microscopes include an Abbe condenser with an iris diaphragm. Combined, they control both the focus and quantity of light applied to the specimen.

Why do you close the iris before you look through the Oculars?

Look through the oculars and adjust the interpupillary distance so that you see just one illuminated field. The field will tend to “dance” before your eyes. While looking through the oculars, open and close the iris diaphragm. Note the effect this has on the amount of light coming through the oculars.
