VISION Poudre High School By: Ben Kirk

3 Accessory Structures of the Eye
Eyelids (Palpebrae): Windshield wipers for the eyes. Lubricate and remove debri Lacrimal Caruncle: Produces night boogers. Secreted so that the eyelids don’t stick together.

4 Accessory Structures of the Eye
Conjunctiva: Epithelial layer continuous with the inner layer of the eye lid

5 Accessory Structures of the Eye
Lacrimal Apparatus: production, distribution, and removal of tears Lacrimal Gland: Superior and lateral to the eye Releases tears using tear duct Lacrimal Canals: Tube by which tears are removed from the eye and enter the Lacrimal Sac

6 Accessory Structures of the Eye
Lacrimal Apparatus: Nasolacrimal Duct: Cavity that connects lacrimal sacs to the nasal cavity Swallow or blow out all lacrimal secretions


8 Eye Diseases, injuries, etc…
Sty: Infection of sebaceous glands of eyelashes (very painful) Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye): Damage to and irritation of the conjunctivitis

9 Anatomy of the Eye General Facts: Approximately 1 inch in diameter
Approximately 8 g in weight

10 Eye Anatomy Posterior/Vitreous Chamber:
Filled with vitreous humor (gel like consistency) Used to maintain shape of the eye and hold retina in place

11 Eye Anatomy Anterior Chamber:
Separated from posterior chamber by iris and cilliary bodies Filled with Aqueous Humor (water like consistency) Function: circulation of nutrients and wastes as well as eyeball structure/shape

12 Layers of the Eye Fibrous Tunic: Tough outer layer for protection and muscle attachment Sclera: White of the eye Connective tissue where all extrinsic muscles attach. Cornea: Continuous with sclera Fibers are arranged to allow light passage (Cornea appears clear) No blood vessels, very hard to repair


14 Layers of the Eye Vascular Tunic: Middle Layer
Iris: Colored region of the eye Muscles that regulate pupil size Pupil: Opening in the center of the iris Ciliary Body: Mass of muscle connected to the lens to change its shape Choroid: Layer of blood vessels that separates the fibrous and neural tunics posterior to the ciliary bodies.


16 Layers of the Eye Neural Tunic: The Retina
Photoreceptors: Rods and Cones Rods: Light detection (night vision) Cones: Color Detection Fovea: Focal point of all images Highest concentration of cones Optic Disk: Where optic nerve and blood vessels leave the vitreous chamber Blind Spot


18 The Lens: Focuses image on retina Physically changes shape

19 Lens Abnormalities Cataracts: Lens becomes cloudy
Glaucoma: Increased fluid pressure inside the eye, pinching the optic nerve Myopia: Nearsightedness Eyeball is too deep Hyperopia: Farsightedness Eyeball is too shallow

20 Glaucoma

21 Myopia

22 Hyperopia

23 Masters of Illusion
