ALPHA-CHYMOTRYPSIN
USED DURING CATARACT SURGERY TO DISSOLVE THE ZONULES THAT ATTACH TO THE LENS OF THE EYE; INJECTED THROUGH THE IRIS.
ANESTHETICS
USED TO PRODUCE THE ABSENCE OF ALL SENSATION; USED LOCALLY OR TOPICALLY.
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AGENTS
USED TO REDUCE INFLAMMATION AND PREVENT EDEMA; INJECTED OR USED TOPICALLY.
BONY ORBIT
ROUNDED SOCKET IN THE CRANIUM IN WHICH THE EYEBALL IS PARTIALLY SUNK.
CALIPER
USED FOR MAKING PERCISION MEASUREMENTS ON SUCH PROCEDURES AS CORNEAL, MUSCLE, OR EYEBALL SURGERIES.
CANTHUS
INNER OR OUTER CORNER OR ANGLE WHERE THE EYE LIDS MEET.
CONJUNCTIVA
MUCOUS MEMBRANE WHICH LINES EYELIDS AND COVERS THE ANTERIOR SURFACE OF THE GLOBE.
CORNEA
TRANSPARENT PORTION OF THE OUTER LAYER (SCLERA) OF THE EYEBALL.
CORNEAL SCISSORS
USED TO CUT THE CORNEA FOR INTRAOCULAR PROCEDURES.
CRYSTALLINE LENS
THE PART OF THE EYE WHICH, IN ADDITION TO THE CORNEA, REFRACTS LIGHT RAYS AND FOCUSES THEM ON THE RETINA.
CYCLODIALYSIS SPATULA
USED TO CREAT A TRACT BETWEEN THE ANTERIOR CHAMBER AND SUPRACHOROIDAL SPACE TO ALLOW FOR THE ESCAPE OF AQUEOUS HUMOR AND REDUCE INTRAOCULAR PRESSURE IN GLACOMA.
EXTRAOCULAR
OUTSIDE THE GLOBE OF THE EYE.
EXTRINSIC EYE MUSCLES
MUSCLES CONTAINING THE EYEBALL TO THE ORBIT CAVITY.
EYE SPECULUM
USED TO RETRACT OPEN THE EYELIDS FOR INTRAOCULAR PROCEDURES SUCH AS CATARACT EXTRACTION.
FLOURESCEIN SODIUM
USED TO STAIN THE CORNEA FOR DETECTING CORNEAL ABRASIONS AND FOREIGN BODIES; SWABBED ON SURFACE OF THE EYE.
FORCEPS, SPECIALIZED
USED TO GRASP DELICATE EYE TISSUE; NAME OF FORCEPS TYPICALLY INDICATES TYPE OF TISSUE TO BE GRASPED.
GLOBE
EYEBALL
HYALURONIDASE
USED AS AN ADJUNCT TO INCREASE ABSORPTION AND DISPERSION OF THE ANESTHETIC AGENT; INJECTED.
IRIS
COLORED MEMBRANE OF THE EYE WHICH SEPERATES THE ANTERIOR AND POSTERIOR CHAMBERS; CONTRACTS AND DILATES TO REGULATE ENTRANCE OF LIGHT RAYS.
IRIS HOOK
USED TO RETRACT AND MANIPULATE THE IRIS ON INTRAOCULAR PROCEDURES SUCH AS CATARACT EXTRACTION.
IRRIGANTS
USED TO IRRIGATE ANTERIOR CHAMBER, TO KEEP CORNEA AND EYE TISSUE MOIST, AND TO SOAK AND RINSE INTRAOCULAR LENSES.
LACRIMAL GLANDS AND DUCTS
SYSTEMS WHICH SECRETES AND CONDUCTS TEARS.
LENS LOOP
USED TO POSTION THE LENS IN CATARACT EXTRACTION WITH INTRAOCULAR LENS IMPLANT.
LIMBIS
THE EDGE OF THE CORNEA WHERE IT UNITES WITH THE SCLERA.
MARKERS
USED TO MARK INCISIONS, OPTIC ZONES, ASTIGMATISM, RADIAL, OR CORNEA LINES.
MIOTICS
USED TO CONSTRICT THE PUPIL TO REDUCE INTRAOCULAR PRESSURE; ALSO USED TO HELP PREVENT LOSS OF VITREOUS HUMOR IN CATARACT SURGERY; DROP FORM.
MUSCLE HOOK
USED TO RETRACT EXTRINSIC EYE MUSCLES (RECTUS AND OBLIQUE) IN PROCEDURES TO CORRECT STRABISMUS; ALSO USED ON ENUCLEATION.
MYDRIATICS / CYCLOPLEGICS
USED TO DILATE THE PUPIL; DROP FORM.
MYOPIA
LIGHT RAYS COME TO A FOCUS IN FRONT OF THE RETINA; NEARSIGHTEDNESS.
NEEDLEHOLDER
USED TO SUTURE DELICATE EYE TISSUE.
OPTIC NERVE
SECOND CRANIAL NERVE WITH SPECIAL SENSE OF SIGHT WHICH TRANSMITS IMPULSES TO THE OCCIPITAL REGION OF THE BRAIN CONCERNED WITH VISION.
POSTERIOR CHAMBER
SPACE BETWEEN IRIS AND LENS WHICH IS FILLED WITH AQUEOUS HUMOR.
RETINA
INNERMOST, INCOMPLETE COAT OF THE EYEBALL WHICH RECEIVES IMAGES FORMED BY THE LENS.
SENSORY RECEPRORS
RODS AND CONES IN THE RETINAL LAYER WHICH ARE STIMULATED BY LIGHT RAYS TO CONDUCT NERVE IMPULSES TO THE BRAIN VIA THE OPTIC NERVE.
VASOCONSTRICTORS
USED TO PROLONG DURATION OF LOCAL ANESTHETIC AND TO DECREASE BLEEDING; INJECTED AND TOPICAL.
VITREOUS HUMOR
CLEAR, JELLY-LIKE FLUID IN THE POSTERIOR CAVITY OF THE EYE WHICH FILLS THE VITEROUS BODY.
ZONULES
LIGAMENTS RADIATING FROM THE CILIARY BODY TO THE LENS, HOLDING THE LENS IN PLACE.
