Interpupillary distance (PD)
The distance between the center of the pupil of each eye.
Supplies most of the tears to the eye.
What is the frame height, the most vertical dimension of the lens opening also known as?
Transparent covering of the eye that lies between the eyelid and front of the eye.
Located behind the pupil, and is the secondary mechanism of focus, adjusting the amount of focus the light image requires before it reaches the retina.
The gel that fills the eye and allows it to maintain its shape. Also serves as a clear pathway for light when it travels from the lens to the retina.
This is the pathway between the ye and the brain along which the signals produced by the retina travel to the brain.
The nerve center of the eye where light is converted into an electrical signal that travels along the optic nerve to the brain.
A jelly-like subastance located in the anterior chamber.
A layer located behind the retina and absorbs unused radiation.
Associated with aging and results in damaging sharp and central vision.
Is a clouding of the eye's lens and is the leading cause of blindness.
A complication of diabetes, progressive damage to the blood vessels of the retina.
A group of diseases that can damage the eye's optic nerve and result in the vision loss and blindness. It occurs when the normal fluid pressure inside the eyes slowly rises.
(Lazy Eye) When the vision in one of the eyes is reduced because the eye and the brain aren't working together properly. The eye itself may look normal, but it's not being used normally because the brain is favoring the other eye.
Involves an imbalance in the positionig of the two eyes. I can cause the eys to cross in or tuyrn out. It's cause by a lack of coordination between the eyes.
Swelling or infection of the membrane lining the eyelids or Conjunctiva.
Surgical removal of the lens, usually replaced with a plastic intraocular lens.
Numerous different surgeries that facilitate the escape of excess aqueous humor from the eye to lower the intraocular pressure and a few that lower IOP by decreasing the production of aqueous humor.

A paralysis of the ciliary muscle, so accommodation can't occur.
Measurement of the form and curvature of the cornea.
A method of determining the state of refraction of the eye by illumination the retina with a mirror and observing the direction of movement of the retinal illumination and adjacent shadow when the mirror is turned.
The result of the refraction depends on the patient's ability to discern changes in clarity. This process relies on the cooperation of the Patient.
A test that allows a doctor to see inside the back of the eye and other structures using a magnifying instrument and a light source.
The ability to maintain visual focus on an object with both eyes creating a single visual image.
A test that measures the pressure inside your eye, which is called intraocular pressure.
The entire area that can be seen when the eye is directed forward including that which is seen with peripheral vision.
