The white of the eye; a protective fibrous outer layer covers all of the eyeball except for the part covered by the cornea
a muscular ring under the surface of the eyeball; helps the eye focus by changing the len’s shape and also produces aqueous humor
the vascular layer between the sclera and the retina; the blood vessels in the choroid help provide oxygen and nutrients to the eye
Largest sensory nerve of the eye; carries impulses for sight from retina to brain.
Small, specialized central area of the retina responsible for acute central vision.

Dry Eye

If your eyes are constantly itchy or dry, you may have dry eye syndrome, which affects almost 10 million Americans. Dry eye syndrome is caused by a lack of, or poor quality of, tears. Tears lubricate the outer layer of the eye called the cornea. If the tears are not composed of a proper balance of mucous, water, and oil, the eye becomes irritated.


Specialty Contacts

Contact lenses, when used properly, are very convenient, and with the latest advancements in technology, they are extremely comfortable. Most of the time, you will hardly know you are wearing them, though you will certainly notice how clear and accurate your vision is. Contact lenses are small lenses worn on the surface of the eye, or cornea, to correct vision.
