    Anatomy
    iris masculine
    • The iridocorneal angle usually is a wide angle, is formed by the iris and the cornea, and encircles the anterior chamber.
    • The colored circular membrane in the eye just behind the cornea is called the iris.
    • Adhesions may also develop between the iris and cornea (peripheral anterior synechiae), covering up the trabecular drainage meshwork.
    • When the trabecular meshwork is blocked at the junction of the cornea and iris, the resulting rise in intraocular pressure can reach dangerously high levels and damage the optic nerve.
    • The thin sheet of circular muscle of the iris which constricts the pupil of the eye is also known as a sphincter.
    • The cornea, the pupillary opening within the iris, the lens, and the aqueous and vitreous humor combine to form the refractive media of the eye.
    • Uveitis, or inflammation of the iris, ciliary body or choroid, may also cause light sensitivity, pain and loss of vision.
    • The fluid made by the ciliary body (a thickening of the blood vessel tunic) inside the eye nourishes the lens and, cornea and the colored iris.
    • The aqueous humour that fills the anterior chamber (front part of the eye) is produced by the ciliary body, just behind the iris.
    • It's considered superior to a circular iris in that the pupil can open wider in darkness.
    • The liquid hydrogel, based on a dendritic macromer, has optical properties similar to the cornea, the layer that covers the iris and pupil of the eye.
    • Anterior uveitis, which is diagnosed by slit lamp examination, refers to inflammation of the iris and ciliary body and occurs frequently with herpes zoster ophthalmicus.
    • We know that when eyes are shut, oxygen can reach the cornea from the iris solely by way of the stagnant aqueous humor.
    • The crystalline lens is a transparent structure situated behind the iris.
    • The cornea is the clear part of the outer layer of the eye that covers the iris and the pupil.
    • Nourishment for your cornea comes from your tears and the aqueous humor - the clear fluid that fills the space between your iris and cornea.
