What is the fluid in the anterior eye chamber?

What is the fluid in the anterior eye chamber?

Aqueous humor: This is a clear fluid, derived from blood serum, which contains some nutrients, oxygen and which bathes and provides for the health of the interior components of the front of the eye. It also maintains the normal pressure so that proper focusing is possible. It is produced continuously and an equal amount drains continuously. ...Read more

What are the functions of the optic nerve, the retina, the iris, the cornea, and the pupil?

What are the functions of the optic nerve, the retina, the iris, the cornea, and the pupil?

The visual pathway: Light passes through the cornea, which is the front "windshield" of the eye and helps focus the light. The iris works as a muscle to increase or decrease the size of the pupil; this controls how much light comes into the eye. Light hits the retina, which converts the light into signals which are sent, via the optic nerve, to your brain. ...Read more

Which part of the eye focuses light on the retina?

Which part of the eye focuses light on the retina?

See below: The cornea (front window of the eye) focuses most of the light that enters the eye, and then the lens inside the eye focuses the rest before the light hits the retinal surface. Your lens can accommodate, allowing you to focus light at distance or near depending on what you are looking at. ...Read more

Is the blood pressure in the lungs separate from the heart blood pressure?

Is the blood pressure in the lungs separate from the heart blood pressure?

Yes: Oxygen poor venous blood flows to the right side of the heart. It is then pumped into the lungs, and from there goes to the left side of the heart which pumps it into the arteries to the entire body. The commonly measured pressure is the arterial pressure from the lt side of the heart. The pressure in the lungs is from the rt side of the heart, is much lower, and takes an echocardiogram to measure. ...Read more

What are the consequences of a small area of ischemia at the apex of the left ventricle?

Reversible?: It depends. Is the ischemia reverisble or irreversible? Was it detected on a nuclear stress test? Assume it's reversible as seen in a nuclear stress test.Such things seen on a perfusion scan are often referred to as apical defects.That said, along with other indications, i might suggest a clinical correlation via an angiogram or ccta. The consequences could not be determined without a cath or ccta. ...Read more

Is the blood in the white part of my eye considered serious?

Is the blood in the white part of my eye considered serious?

Rarely: Blood over the white part of the eye is usually from a broken blood vessel causing a subconjunctival hemorrhage. It is rarely serious.

Sometimes, no cause is found. See your ophthalmologist to be sure. ...Read more
