Yenka Light and Sound – Eye Problems

One of the great things about Yenka is its ability to bring static phenomenon to life. I’m sure you’ve all seen eye cross-section diagrams showing near-sightedness and farsightedness. But without the ability to change the shape of the lens, move the object, shift the position of the retina… how can we learn about how fixing these eye problems?

Yenka to the rescue! With Yenka, it’s easy to simulate the situation of an eyeball. With the help of a convex lens to represent the lens in the eye and a screen to represent the retina, playing “optometrist” is very easy!

It’s that simple! Please watch the following tutorial for a complete guide to setting up your own Yenka eyeball simulation:
