We are unable to collect much refracted light when we place our eyes too close to the eyepiece of a compound microscope. As a result, there is substantial decrement in the field of view. Hence, the clarity of the image gets blurred. The eye-ring attached to the eyepiece gives the best position for viewing through a compound microscope. The precise location of the eye depends on the separation between the objective lens and the eyepiece.
