corneal transplant
Group of tests used to evaluating the vestibulo-ocular reflex
Recording of the changes in the electrical potential of the retina after the stimulation of light.
Surgical removal of the anterior segment of thelens capsule along with the lens allowing for the insertion of an intraocular lens implant.
extracapsular cataract
extraction (ECCE)
Application of a fluorescein-stained sterile filter paper strip moistened with a few drops of sterile salne or sterile anesthetic solution to the lower cul-de-sac of the eye to visualize a cornial abrasion.
fluorescein staining
Examination of the fundus of the eye, the base or the deepest part of the eye, with an instrument called an ophthalmoscope thru a ophthalmoscopy.
______involves using an opthalmoscope that will establish the anterior chamber anble and display ocular rotation and movement.
