How does the human eye focus?

The lens focuses light through the vitreous humor, a clear gel-like substance that fills the back of the eye and supports the retina. The retina receives the image that the cornea focuses through the eye's internal lens and transforms this image into electrical impulses that are carried by the optic nerve to the brain.

Beside this, how do we focus on objects at different distances?

The lens focuses light rays on the retina, the thin, light-sensitive inner layer at the rear of the eye. Muscles in the ciliary body enable the flexible lens to alter its shape and allow the eye to focus on objects at varying distances. The ability of the lens to focus from far to near is called accommodation.
