Inner layer 1. Retina
The cornea is divided into five distinct layer 1. Epithelium 2. Bowman's membrane 3. Stroma 4. Descemet's membrane 5. Endothelium
A non-pathological lipid deposit that a may appear in the periphery of the cornea, giving the appearance of a whitish ring around the outer edge. Most common in the elderly Arcus senilis
Extensive swelling of the cornea caused by endothelial breakdown. Pockets of fluid called bullseye, from in the corneal tissue and rise to the epithelial surface,where they break and cause pain Bullous keratopathy

the process that secretes aqueous humor into the eye is Ciliary process
One type of cone responds to visible light across the blue and of the light spectrum, another at red end, and a third across the intermediate (green) range. The variety of colors that we see is a result of the mixture and overlapping of the types of cones Color vision there are three different types of cones, containing three different light sensitive pigments called photo pigments
Color blindness Monochromatic, Dichromat, Trichoromatic
When the retina tears or loses contact with the choroid Retinal detachment
The structure of the eye that detect color is Cones

Someone who can only see back, white and shades of gray is referred to as Monochromat
The natural blind spot in each eye is found at the Point where the optic nerve leaves the glove
When looking through the pupil with an ophthalmic instrument, the portion of the posterior glove that is visible is called Fundus
Macula degeneration result is A loss of central vision
When the retina tears it loses contact whit the Choroid
The three different types of cones contain theses photo pigments Blue, red and green
An eye disease where intraocular pressure exceeds normal limits is Glaucoma
An eye disorder caused by developments of opacities on the crystalline lens Cataract
The fluid that fill the anterior and posterior chamber is
Aqueous humor
The anterior chamber is located Between the cornea and the iris
A person with glaucoma loses this part of their field first Peripheral
Retinal tears can develop when The vitreous degenerates or shrinks
Discarded aqueous humor is directed from the chamber to the ciliary veins through Canal of schlemm
The total power of the crystalline lens is approximately +60.00D
This loss of flexibility and accommodation of the crystalline lens lead to Presbyopia
When the optic stars to "cup", this could be an indication of Glaucoma

A pink/red coloration of the underside of the eyelids and the outer surface of the sclera is probably Conjunctivitis
Covers the anterior sclera to the limbus, and moves the eyeball movements Bulbar conjunctiva
The transitional areas, between the kids and glove are called Fornices
The eyelid perform all of these functions Provide protection through the " blink reflex", distribute the tears film over de cornea, limited the amount of light entering the eye
This disorder is characterized by large bumps that appear on the conjunctiva surface of the upper lid Giant papillary conjunctiva
Lacrimal system the pre-corneal teas film that results from each blink consists of three layer Lipid layer, aqueous layer, mucous layer

Other common lacrimal drainage disorder inflammation of the cornea due to dryness associated with a tear deficiency Keratitis sicca
Pre-corneal tears film lipid layer The outermost layer consisting of oils secreted by the meibomian and zeis gland in the eyelid. This layer of oil minimizes evaporation of the underlying watery layer, and prevents tears from spilling out onto the eyelid
Pre-corneal tears film aqueous layer Secreted by the main lacrimal gland that is located above the eyeball on the lateral side. It makes up the majority of the tears film, and responsible for keeping the outer layer of the cornea moist
Pre-corneal mucous layer Made of mucous from the goblet cell, it adheres to the cornea, and creates smooth surface over which the tears can spread easily
All of the following are function of the pre-corneal tears film Acting as a lubricant to the cornea, providing the tears the occur when crying, providing a smooth optical surface for the cornea

Frequent replacement lenses are designed to be replaced Monthly or quarterly
Conventional lenses are designed to be replaced Every six months or longer
Check the three(3) reasons why RGP lenses might be prescribed 1. To correct for astigmatism when a Toric lens did not provide acceptable vision. 2. For patients with keratoconus. 3. For use in the ortho-k process where lenses are worn during sleep to reshape the cornea
Check the statements about the silicone Hydrogel contact lens material that are TRUE Is the latest in soft contact lens technology, available in both Daily wear and Extended wear, allows more oxygen to transfer through the material, and provides all day comfort
Enhancement tint colored contact lenses Darken or intensify the existing eye color
Opaque tint colored contact lenses Dramatically change the eye color
Check all the characteristics of a Toric contact lens The bottom of the lens is weighted to ensure that it remains stationary on the eye when the patient blinks or looks around,correct for astigmatism
Who determines the wearing schedule ( modality) for the patient's lenses The wearing schedule is prescribed by the doctor
. The first hydrogel CL material . Has a limited ability to dissolve and transfer oxygen to the cornea .available in both Daily and extender PolyHema (HEMA )
. The latest in CL . More oxygen to pass through the lens. More wearing comfort. Available both Daily wear and Extended Silicone Hydrogel
