what are the characteristics of bowman's layer? 1. acellular 2. pores present for the passage of corneal nerve axons 3. tapers at the periphery, so does not have conj or sclera counterpart 4. produced pre-natally 5. cannot be regenerated
what are the characteristics of the stroma of the cornea? 1. composed of lamellar arrangement of collagen fibrils 2. proteoglycans called corneal ground substance separates the individual collagen fibers 3. lamellae span the entire cornea 4. metabolic pumps counterbalance the leakage of fluids
what are the characteristics of Descemet's membrane? 1. increases thickness in adulthood 2. can regenerate 3. Schwalbe's line 4. Hassall-Henle Bodies
what is Schwalbe's line? where can it be found? the termination of descement's membrane at the corneal margin
what are hassall-henle bodies? where is it considered abnormal? excrescences of descement's membrane into the anterior chamber. if this is found in the central cornea, it is abnormal --> called cornea guttata
what are the charactersitics of the corneal endothelium? 1. leaky barrier to allow things to flow into the stroma 2. maintas stromal hydration 3. cell density is 2500-3000 cells/mm^2 4. cells are connected by macula occludens
what does the internal sclera sulcus contain? trabecular meshwork and canal of schlemm
what is the anterior boundary of the corneoscleral limbus? defined by a plane connecting the termination of bowman's layer and th e termination of descemet's membrane
what is the posterior boundary of the corneoscleral limbus? defined by a plane perpendicular to the surface of the globe and passing through the posterior edge of the sclera spur
where are EOMs attached to? sclera
where is the sclera the thickest? thinnest? thickest at the optic nerve; thinnest just posterior to the insertions of the rectus muscles
what does the sclera foramina contain? an aperature for the fibers of the optic nerve to exit
what is the lamina cribrosa? where is it found? a sieve like structure in the sclera that allows the passage of axons of the retinal ganglion cells as well as arteries and veins of the retina
where do nerve fibers get myelinated in the sclera? lamina cribrosa
what are the sclera aperatures and what goes through them? 1. anterior sclera aperture- anterior ciliary arteries 2. middle sclera aperture- vortex veins 3. posterior sclera aperture- long and short ciliary nerves and vessels
what are the layers of the sclera? episclera, sclera stroma, lamina fusca
what are the characteristics of the episclera? 1. vascularized 2. continuous with tenon's capsule 3. anteriorly rich in blood supply from anterior ciliary arteries 4. posterior blood supply from short posterior ciliary arteries
what are the characteristics of the sclera stroma? 1. collagen bundles are thicker than cornea 2. collagen bundles contribute to the resiliency and strength
what is the opaqueness of the sclera due to? different diameters of the collagen fibrils, interlacing bundles, and decreased water-binding substances
what are the characteristics of the lamina fusca? 1. dark brown from melanocytes 2. presence of grooves for passage of long posterior ciliary vessels and nerves
what originates at the sclera spur? longitudinal ciliary msucle fibers
what is the sclera spur? projections of sclera tissue
