EyeS – 17% of sensory receptors are in the eyes


Eyebrows, eyelids, and eyelashes - protects the inner structure from foreign

Conjunctiva- lubricates the eye


Sclera- clear membrane

Cornea- window as light enters the eye

Irirs- controls the light coming in the eyes

Pupils- light enters

Aqueous humor - 10-21 mmHg IOP- nourish the different structures of the eyes

Retina- RODs (dim) and CONS (light) – visualize night and day

Myopia- nearsighted; biconcave lens – Management; Phoreactive Keratotomy; LASIK

Hyperopia- farsighted; biconvex lens

Astigmatism- an irregularity in the curve of the cornea

Presbyopia- farsightedness related to aging

Diagnostic exams;

Snellens’ chart

E-chart- for patient who could not read

Rosenbaum chart- near vision


-deviation from perfect ocular alignment caused by imbalance intraocular muscles.


Esotopia- medial rectus muscle –“turning in”

Exotopia – lateral turning out

Hypertropia – turning up

Hypotropia- turning down


Maintain a safe environment

Put things in the same place and tell the patient about the locations
