Does The Conjunctiva Cover The Cornea
Accommodation: Both the cornea and the crystalline lens function to refract the light into eye. The lens also has the additional function of changing shape through accommodation to give you stronger near focus. This process is what allows younger people to read without glasses and why people over 40 need reading glasses as the lens loses it accommodation. ...Read more

If you were to open your eyes underwater , could the water damage the surface of the eyes like the cornea , conjunctiva and the sclera?
?xanthalasma: A picture is very valuable for this. Xanthalasma is a possible diagnosis. They Often occur in people of Asian or Mediterranean decent and are symptomless. They may be familial. They may or may not occur in individuals with high cholesterol. A visit to an Ophthalmologist is helpful for diagnosis. They can be removed if interested. ...Read more
The cornea is: the anterior (front) portion of the eye. It is composed of five layers (a sixth layer has recently been discovered). It is optically clear, rigid and allows light to be refracted into the eye. The lens is inside the eye behind the iris and is optically clear. When young, the lens can change shape through the interaction of the ciliary body, helping to focus the light to the retina. ...Read more
Empty boney crater: The eye ball is actually a ball--a spherical, squeeshy, rubbery ball. Once removed from its socket, the empty boney crater is basically in the shape of the eye ball. Often, a filler is needed, such as an eye prosthesis to fill the crater. With current technology, the prosthesis can look so real it is hard to tell from a distance. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
If the nerves inside the eye like the ciliary nerves get damaged could it effect the color of the iris resulting in a darker colored iris?
Aqueous humor: The cornea is solid and has no internal fluids,. A cut all the way through will release the fluid from the front of the eye termed aqueous humor which bathes the lens, iris and inside of the cornea. It is under pressure and will seep out if the cornea is cut. This is a dangerous situation and requires immediate evaluation by an ophthalmologist to prevent infection and damage. ...Read more
No: Ordinary contact lenses circulate over the cornea and do not reach the eyeball. However there are optometrists who can fit you with a custom lens (specially created) that can sometimes reach a larger circumference. These are extremely expensive and a contact lens that is very big (>18mm) may be very uncomfortable and may not cover the specific area all the time as all lenses must move. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
High bilirubin: Yellow eyes(sclera icterus) are generally a sign of jaundice caused by a buildup of bilirubin in the blood. The build up could be due to serious diseases and conditions that cause liver damage or dysfunction, blockage of the bile ducts, gallbladder or pancreatic disease, stone or cancer. ...Read more
Why do I see double only on what I am not paying attention too when i cover one eye it goes alway but i see a little blurry?
Cold packs: A black eye is basically bruising to the soft tissue around the eye. Like most bruises, ice packs placed on the area can minimize the bruising. This is assuming no injury to the eye itself. Any changes to your vision or increasing pain should be checked by your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I went for a vision field test and I think I was supposed to cover one with an eye patch to see the flashing light but I didn't ? Is this a problem
Incorrect test: Visual field testing is done one eye at a time. The fields of each eye overlap and doing it with both eyes will combine the input from each eye. If you had the test this way, the result will be largely meaningless. Did you have this done by an optometrist? Or did you see a real doctor - an ophthalmologist.? ...Read more

My sty is super small now like to my eye skin but it is taking forever to go away and for my eye skin to cover it?
Use progressive lenses and monovision contacts . When I cover one eye objects appear larger in one eye than the other. Why is that?
Accidental telescope: The eye with the more minus contact lens sees the larger image because a minus lens acts as an eyepiece in a Galilean telescope, while the progressive bifocals act as the objective lens. This is of theoretical, but little practical value clinically. Either switch to bifocal contact lenses or correct both eyes for distance with the lenses and use over-the counter readers. Aniseikonia fixed. ...Read more
I am experiencing a bluriness in my vision. When i cover my right eye and blink, i see a black circle with white border and black outline.
Exam: Some possible causes of your blurred vision include abnormalities such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia, or astigmatism which can be improved with corrective lenses (eyeglasses) or this may signal the presence of eye disease or another illness. I strongly encourage you to see an Ophthalmologist (Eye Dr Specialist). In the meantime please go to a clinic for a general medical exam! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can I get the vision in my left eye up to par with my right eye by keeping my right eye covered with a patch, forcing my left eye to do more work?
Patching : Patching the better visioned eye does improve visual acuity in children particularly when they are 9 yo or less in age. Even to some degree patching up to 17 yo can help, but less effective. I didn't get your age, but if you are an adult, the benefits of patching will not likely have a positive impact. You should see an Eye MD if you are concerned about your vision. All you may need is glasses. ...Read more
