Besides the optic n., what travels through the optic canal?
What are the 3 primary branches that V1 divides into?
- Nasociliary n.
- Frontal n.--> Supratrochlear and supraorbital nn.
- Lacrimal n.
What is the pw of the nasociliary n. across the eye? What branches does it give off (just kind of know them)
- Lateral to medial
- Short ciliary nn., long ciliary nn., posterior ethmoidal n., anterior ethmoidal n., infratrochlear n.
How does the communicating branch of the ciliary ganglion reach the eye?
Runs thru the ciliary ganglion w/o synapsing, then reaches eye by running w/short ciliary nn.
What are the only types of fibers that synapse w/ciliary ganglion?
What other fibers run directly thru it?
- Parasymp fibers from CN III
- Sensory and symp fibers
What m. causes constriction of the pupil via parasympathetic stimulation?
Sphincter pupillae m.
What m. causes allows eye to focus on nearby objects via parasympathetic stimulation?
Ciliary m. contraction
After passing thru ciliary ganglion, how to sympathetic fibers enter the eye?
What m. do they innervate and what's its function?
- Short and long ciliary nn.
- Dilator pupillae mm. --> dilate pupil
What are the 7 branches of the ophthalmic a. that Dr. Frystak cares about?
Long and short ciliary (choroidal)
What veins drain the orbit?
What hole do they pass thru?
Where do they drain to?
- Superior and inferior ophthalmic vv.
- Superior orbital fissure
- Cavernous sinus
What are the 3 layers of the eye, outside to inside?
Schlera, choroid, retina
What are responsible for the production of the eye's aqueous humor?
Ciliary processes (in the ciliary body).
- Distributed to ant and post compartments
What attaches the ciliary body to the lens?
What is the cause of Glaucoma?
Increasing IOP (intraocular pressure). Aqueous humor drainage is less than its production (produced in ciliary body)
- Compresses retina, optic n., BV's
- Caused be decreased outflow thru canal of schlemm or increased production in aqueous humor
- Can dmg retina, painful, eventually can cause blindness
- Sx: blurred vision, halos around bright objects
Where is the constrictor pupillae m. located?
Pupillary aspect of the eye, circumferentially. (parasymp)
Where is the dilator pupillae m. located?
Deep to constrictor pupillae, oriented radially. (symp)
Where is the vitreous body contained?
What are the functional layers of cells in the retina, in the order that light hits them?
1. Ganglion cells (cell bodies, pass to optic n.)
2. Interneurons and bipolar cells
3. Photoreceptors (lie adjacent to pigmented epithelium)
What are Muller cells, basically?
Supporting cells of the retina
Do rods or cones have higher amplification?
Which has higher temporal resolution, rods or cones?
Which take more light to saturate, cones or rods?
Which have more pw convergence (lower acuity), rods or cones?
Describe what's present at the fovea.
Avascular zone consisting mainly of just a cone layer.
Where does the optic n. leave the sclera?
Lamina cribrosa (of the sclera)
What is the name of the retina overlying the lamina cribrosa?
Optic papilla/optic disc/blind spot
Where do the central a. and v. of the retina run thru?
Center of the optic n.
Where does the central v. of the retina normally drain to?
Do the oblique mm. insert on the medial or lateral side of the eyeball?
What does the outer-most layer of the retina consist of? (resting on the choroid)
Pigmented epithelial cells
What forms the blood-retinal barrier?
Tight junctions b/w Muller cells (of the retina)
What is responsible for the yellow and white secretion sometimes found in the eye upon arising after a night's sleep?
The lacrimal caruncle (contains the sweat glands, sebaceous glands, and cilia)
What accounts for the "sniffling" which is necessary to keep the draining tears within the nasal cavity during crying.
Anterior drainage of the nasolacrimal duct
- "overflow" from the ductal system
Describe the pathway of tears from the lacrimal gland.
Lacrimal gland (ducts-->)
Superior palpebral fornix -->
Puncta lacrimali (drain opening, sup and inf medially) -->
Lacrimal canaliculus (sup and inf) -->
Lacrimal sac (fossa of lacrimal bone) -->
