Disorder Name : Eye Disorders


The eyes are the most complex organs you possess except for your brain. They are composed of more than two million working parts and can process 36,000 bits of information every hour. They can instantaneously set in motion hundreds of muscles and organs in your body and in a normal life-span, will bring you almost 24 million images of the world around you. The adult eyeball measures about 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter. Of its total surface area only one-sixth is exposed - the front portion.

The motion of an eye is regulated by six muscles. The most important parts of the eye include the iris, cornea, lens, retina, conjunctiva, the macula, and the optic nerve. The Cornea is the transparent front lens of the eye that covers the iris and pupil, and provides most of the eyes optical power. The Lens is the transparent, biconvex lens of the eye and helps bring rays of light to focus on the retina. The Macula is the small, specialized central area of the retina responsible for acute central vision. The Optic Nerve carries impulses for sight from the retina to the brain. The Pupil is the variable sized black circular opening in the center of the iris, and it regulates the amount of light that enters the eye. The Retina is the lining of the rear two thirds of the eye, the retina converts images from the eyes optical system into electrical impulses sent along the Optic Nerve to the brain. The Vitreous is the transparent, colorless, gelatinous mass that fills the rear two-thirds of the interior of the eyeball, between the lens and the retina.

Eye disorders comprise of several symptoms and disorders like asthenopia, cataract, glaucoma, blepharitis, conjunctivitis, stye, myopia, etc.
