unequal pupil size (difference of 1 mm or more) can also be a benign and idiopathitic condition
ring-shaped grayish-white deposit of fat near the corneal limbus-typical occurs after age of 60
ring-shaped grayish-white deposit of fat near the corneal limbus in young patients with high cholesterol levels
multiple, yellow-white, round birefringenet particles composed of calcium phosphates soaps attached to the vitreous framework--usually asymptomatic, does not cause floateers or interefere with vision--does affect view of fundus--usually unilateral (75%) and associated with diabetes mellitus (30%)
inflammation of the eyelid margins--usuallyy redness, swelling, and itching
angle formed by the inner or outer junction of the upper and lower eyelids; if it is on side near the nose its called
angle formed by the inner or outer junction of the upper and lower eyelids; if it is on side away from nose its called
angle formed by the inner or outer junction of the upper and lower eyelids. also what is the plural form
pink, fleshy conjunctival tissue in the nasal corner of each eye over the semilunar fold
Opacity or cloudiness of the crystalline lens, which may prevent a cleaer image from forming on the retina. Surgical removale of lens may be neceassary if visual loss becomes significant with lost optical power replaced by an IOL, CL, or aphakic spectacle. May be congential, caused by trauma, age, or disease. There are many forms.
obstruction and inflammation of the meibomian gland with leakage of sebum into surrounding tissue and resultant lipogranuloma
transparent mucous membrane covering outer surface of the eyeball (except cornea)
transparent front of the eye that covers the iris, pupil, and anterior chamber and provides most of an eyes optical power.
Five layers of cornea (IDT we need to know)
Epithelium, bowmans membrane, stroma, decemet's membrane, and endothelium
lid margin does not rest normally against the eyeball, but turns outward or is pulled away as by a scar--eversion of the eyelid margin. Can create corneal exposure with excessive drying, tearing, and irritation
inward turning of upper or lower eyelid so that the margin rests against the eyeball and rubs eyeball--inversion of eyelid margin
border between outer and inner layers of the eyelid margin that separates eyelid skin from conjunctival mucous membrane. Eyelashes are in front of the line, tarsal gland ducts behind.
acute bacterial infection of the sebaceous eyelid glands--most common of meibomian glands or glands of zeis or moll--associated with staphylococcus aureus
acute bacterial infection of the sebaceous eyelid glands--most common of meibomian glands
acute bacterial infection of the sebaceous eyelid glands--most common of glands of zeis or moll
increase blood flow--usually refers to eye redness caused by congestion of conjunctival blood vessels
having pupils of equal size
vertical pigment deposit on corneal endothelium-- found with pigment dispersion glaucoma and following uveitis
inability to close eyelids completely, leading to corneal and conjunctival drying
oil gland (one of a series) within the eyelid tissue whose duct opens onto the eyelid margin just behind the gray line. Secretions supply the outer portion of the tear film, preventing rapid tear evaporation and tear overflow and providing tight eyelid closure. also known as tarsal gland ducts
a small white spot on posterior lens capsule that respresents a remnant of the posterior tunica vasculosa lentis where the former hyaloid artery attached
a self limited, mildly contagious skin disease caused by a pox virus. typical lesions are small, dome shaped umbilicated, shiny skin colored papules
structures surround the eyeball; includes eyelides, eyebrows, tear drainage system, orbital wall, and orbital contents
refers to a benign cutaneous or mucosal tumor that constists of the cluster of finger like projects of proliferating epithelial and fibrovascular tissue
benign, yellowish brown subconjunctival elevation usually located on either side of the cornea--composed of degenerated elastic tissue
Abnormal wedge shaped growht on bulbar conjunctiva probably related to sun irritation. may gradually advance on cornea req surgical removal
an abnormally low position(drooping) of the upper lid. may be congenital, caused by paralysis or weakness of CN3 or sympathetic nerves or caused by excessive weight of upper lids
tiny skin opening of the lacrimal canaliculus of each upper and lower eyelid, near the nose. Entrance to the tear drainage system (lacrimal) system. Each is surrounded by a small papilla (elevation) of skin. what is plural form as well
punctum (lacrimal); puncta
opaque, fibrous, protective outer layer of the eye that is directly continuous with the cornea in front and with the sheath covering the optic nerve behind. Contains collagen and elastic fibers.
bulging of the eye surface that includes part of the uvea (iris, ciliary body) into an area of thin stretched sclera. if no uveal tissue is included in the stretched area, this condition is called ectasia.
adhesions that bind the iris to any adjacent structures. what is plural form
adhesions that bind the iris to any adjacent structures (specifically to the corneal endothelium)
adhesions that bind the iris to any adjacent structures (specifically to the anterior lens surface; occurs commonly in uveitis)
misdirected upper or lower eyelashes that turn inward, toward the eyeball; may scratch the cornea. usually follows severe eyelid inflammation or scarring.
junction lines within the lens of the eye; formed by end to end contact of the tips of lens fibers.
oil-producing glands that surround the eyelashes. ducts enter lash follicles near the eyelid margins.
