An image is formed on the retina. The image is inverted, real, and diminished. The ability of the eye to form an image on the curved surface of the retina is extremely important in human vision.
The ray entering the eye is first refracted in the cornea and then in the eye lens which is the main refractor. This forms inverted, real image on the retina which is processed in the brain and a final erect image is seen.
when an image goes through the eyes the image that forms in the retina is upside down and the brain has to flip it back the right way.
And its a real image.
