今日小常識

The cornea is the transparent front part of the eye. Corneas can be transplanted by an operation where a damaged or diseased cornea is replaced with one from someone who has just died. The first corneal transplant was in 1905 by Eduard Zirm. It was one of the first successful transplant operations.

角膜是眼球最前面的一片透明組織。剛剛死亡的人的健康角膜可以通過手術被移植到另一個眼球上去替換傷損或患病的角膜。世界上首例角膜移植手術是由愛德華▪則姆完成的。這例手術也成為了早期移植手術的成功典範之一。

今日短語

To look someone in the eye 這個短語的意思就是你雙眼直視對方,讓對方相信你所說的話是完全真實的,即使你有可能並沒有說實話。

例句

John looked me in the eye and told me that he loved me.

I looked at my boss in the eye and told him exactly what I thought.

請注意

如果英語裏碰到 more to something than meets the eye 這個形容方式,意思一般是「某事/某物其實另有文章」。

I don't like Jane's new husband. He seems kind and gentle but I think there's more to him than meets the eye.
