What artery branches off the ophthalmic artery? Central artery of the retina
Why is the eye very fatty? Protection and movement
What drains into the lacrimal sac which is in the lacrimal bone? Lacrimal canaliculi
Where is the lacrimal gland located? Superior and lateral
What part of the eye does chronic dry eyes effect? Cornea
What is the optic nerve an extension of? Forebrain
What does the facial nerve go through before it innervates the facial muscles? Stylomastoid foramen
What other foramen, besides the carotid canal, is the internal carotid artery associated with? Foramen lacerum
What is termed as the "truck stop"? Pterygopalatine ganglion
What nerve is in charge of the special sensory/taste from anterior 2/3 of the tongue? Chorda tympani nerve
Is the greater petrosal nerve parasympathic or sympathetic? Parasympathetic (presynaptic)

Where do the rectus muscle originate? Common tendinous ring
Where do the rectus muscles insert? Sclera
Levator palpebrae superioris OINA O- lesser wing of sphenoid I- superior tarsus and skin of superior eyelid N- oculomotor A- elevate superior eyelid
Superior oblique OINA O- body of sphenoid I- fibrous ring then inserts on sclera N- trochlear A- abducts, depresses, medially rotates

What does the trochlear nerve help you do? Look down
If the trochlear nerve is damaged, what can be a result? Diplopia
If the abducens nerve is paralyzed, what muscles take over? Medical rotators
What nerve comes across from the other side of the brain? Trochlear nerve
If a trochlear nerve injury occurs close to the brainstem, which eye will be effected? Contralateral

What nerve is a branch of V1 and innervates the cornea? Long ciliary nerve
What two muscles are intraocular muscles? Dilator pupillae and sphincter pupillae
Do parasympathetic or sympathetic impulses go straight through the ganglion to intraocular vessels? Sympathetic
What nerve is postsynaptic (sympathetic) and goes to the front of the eye? Short ciliary nerve
