Corpuscles of the Eye lets visitors see microscopic cells inside their own eye. People looking into the viewer see bright sparkles that move with the watcher’s pulse. These sparkles are white blood cells moving through tiny capillaries in the retina, the eye’s light-sensitive layer. These cells are always there (and can sometimes be glimpsed when looking at the sky), but the blue light in this exhibit makes them especially easy to see.
