The lacrimal appratus The lacrimal appratus Presentation Transcript

  • THE LACRIMAL APPARATUS
    • Lacrimal gland secrets tears into the upper fornix of the conjunctival sac which are spread over the surface of the cornea as a tear film by blinking of the lids.
    • Tears accumulate at the inner canthus and drain into the lacrimal sac via the puncta & canaliculi.
    • The sac is continuous inferiorly with the nasolacrimal duct which opens into the nasal cavity just beneath the inferior turbinate.
  • The lacrimal apparatus Lacrimal sac Lacrimal gland Excretory ducts of lacrimal gland Lacrimal punctum Lacrimal canaliculus Nasolacrimal duct Inferior meatus of nasal cavity Nostril
    • Tears:
      • Convey social information, hydrate the eye, contain an antimicrobial agent, drain into mucous membrane of nose
  •  
  • Lacrimal Apparatus
    • lacrimal glands
      • produces and drains tears
        • lacrimal fluid
          • watery solution containing salts, some mucus, and lysozyme
          • protects, cleans, lubricates and moistens the eyeball
          • spreads from lateral to medial by blinking
          • about 1mL of lacrimal fluid per day

  • THE EYE (GLOBE)
    • Two spheres with different radii:
    • - Cornea, window of the eye.
    • - Sclera, opaque shell.
    • *** The eye measures approximately 24 mm in all its main diameters.
  •  
  • The coats of the eye
    • *** Three layers:
    • The outer: inelastic coat, transparent cornea and opaque sclera.
    • The middle, vascular coat, The Uvea:
    • choroid, ciliary body and iris.
    • The inner: The Retina, extends forwards to within 6 mm of the limbus.
  •  
  •  
  • The Chambers of The Eye
    • *** Three optically clear spaces:
    • The anterior chamber, in front of the iris
    • The posterior chamber, immediately behind the iris. These two chambers which communicate through the pupil are filled with clear aqueous humour.
    • The vitreous cavity: filled by gel-like structure, The Vitreous.
  •  
  •  
  • The Lens
    • The crystalline lens is the only structure continuously growing throughout the life.
    • Changeable refractive media.
    • Capsule, epithelium and lens fibers.
    • Congenital anomalies and effect of systemic diseases.
    • Cataract.
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • Retina and Vitreous
    • Vitreous attachment.
    • Optic nerve head, macula, fovea, retinal background, Ora serrata, and retinal vasculature.
    • Effect of systemic diseases.
    • Retinal detachment.
