the eye only captures the light where it will send a neural impulse to the brain where it decodes the signal to make the image kind of like the 01's that make up the digital universe(internet) where the computer decodes it so we can see what the image is. This is incredibly simplified and the more complex answer will boggle your mind with Biology and chemistry of it. The body is really amazing...

Why is a normal eye not able to see clearly objects placed closer than 25cms?

Light from objects that we see has to be focused by the eye to give a sharp image on the retina. Light from near objects is very divergent (spreading out), and the lens of the eye has to become very thick to focus it. As there is a limit to how thick we can make the lens, there is a near point beyond which we cannot focus.
