Word! Vitreous Body

Word! Vitreous Body

Vitreous Body

(En español: Cuerpo vítreo)

Say: vih-tree-us bah-dee

The vitreous body takes up most of the eye and gives the eye its shape. It is the space between the lens and the retina and it is filled with vitreous humor, which is a clear jelly. Just don't spread it on toast - yuck!
