Normal vision
What are the light rays refracted by?
By the lens and cornea then to the photoreceptors of the retina.
Defect of the curvature of the cornea or the lens.
What do concave lens fix?
Concave lens separate the light rays(divergence.) So the concave lens fix eyes that are nearsightedness. The lens of concave eyes create a "u" formation.
What do convex lens fix?
Convex lens cross the light rays (convergence). So the convex lens fix eyes that are farsightedness. The lens of the convex eyes form a round bowl protruding out.
Why does farsightedness (hyperopia) occurs?
When someone is farsightedness the image is focused behind the retina because the eyeball is too short.
Due to natural aging process, what does this cause lens to do?
The lens' elasticity decreases, which causes people to slowly not have the ability to see nearby or closeup objects.
Hereditary defects in color vision result from lack of what?
Certain cones needed to absorb certain wavelengths of light.
What is the purpose of visual acuity test? And what is used for testing?
To test the sharpness of vision. A chart called, Snellen Eye Chart is used.
What is the consequence of an astigmatism?
Some of the portions of an image projected on the retina are sharply focused, but other parts are blurred.
What is the astigmatism testing? What is used?
The test is testing if an individual has an astigmatism, testing if there is a defect in the curvature in the cornea or the lens.
the process by which the eye's lens changes shape to focus near or far objects on the retina.
What is the accommodation testing?
Testing the elasticity of the eye. The accommodation involves a reflex which involves the muscles of the ciliary body. Relaxing the tension of the suspensory ligaments that are attached to the lens. this causes the surface to become convex.
Normal accommodation for people around the age of 20 is what?
10 cm of points
What does the color vision test? What is used?
Test if the person was born lacking cones causing to be sensitive to reds or greens. The Ishihara's book is used to test any red-green defects.
protanopia colorblindness
possess decreased sensitivity to the red-sensitive cones
deuteranopia colorblindess
possess decreased sensitivity to green-sensiive cones
What is blind-spot demonstration?
Demonstrating that proves that the optic nerve does not possess any photoreceptors.
Name and define the three reflexes: Photopupillary reflex, accommodation pupillary reflex, and convergence reflex.
photopupillary reflex= smooth muscles controlling the size of the pupil.
accommodation pupillary reflex= pupil constricts as a normal accommodation reflex to focus on close objects.
convergence reflex= eyes converge as normal convergence reflex to focus on close objects.

List the structures and fluids through which light passes as it travels from the cornea to the retina.
CORNEA, aqueous humor, PUPIL OF IRIS, lens, VITREOUS HUMOR, retina
How are the rods and cones different?
Rods= dimlight (night time) & black/white colors & more of rods than cones
Cones= bright light & see color
what kind of tissues do you think is responsible for this quality of toughness that cause cutting a layer of the eye difficult?
dense fibers of C.T.
where do you find aqueous humor in the dissected eye?
behind cornea and lens
what is the function of the dark pigment in the choroid coat?
dark pigment absorbs all the excess light
Where is conjunctiva located?
Located outside the cornea
The eye contains what, modified neurons located on its inner wall.
Name in order the labeling of the lacrimal apparatus.
lacrimal gland, superior and inferior canaliculi, lacrimal sac, nasolacrimal duct, nasal cavity, and inferior nasal concha
jellylike mass helps to hold the lens in place anteriorly and helps to hold the retina against the chord coat.
vitreous humor
serves to reflect light back throughout the retina, an action thought to aid the night vision of some animals. its located on an iridescent area of the choroid coat beneath the retina.

the sensory organ within the ampulla of a semicircular canal is called a what?
crista ampullaris
the blank of this sensory organ consists of a dome-shaped gelatinous mass.
when the head is moved, the fluid inside the membranous portion of a semicircular canal tends to remain stationary because of the blank of the fluid.
parts of the what of the brain interpret impulses from the equilibrium receptors.
When the eyes are open what sensory organs provide information needed to maintain equilibrium?
