  1. Penetrating Keratoplasty = Corneal Transplant
    • Cornea is avascular and has one of the bodies highest densities of nerve endings.
    • No HLA or ABO blood-typing is necessary for a corneal transplant.
  2. Leading cause of preventable blindness in US, 2nd leading cause of blindness.
    Highest among?
    • Glaucoma
    • African Americans
  3. Fovea is different from rest of retina because it contains a very high concentration of _____
  4. Only area of the retina capable of 20/20 vision
  5. Posterior Vitreous Detachment
    Vitreous gel liqeufies with age and eventually falls awway or separates from teh retina (normal event that occurs between 40-70)
  6. PVD produces a
  7. Retinal Detachment:
    Due to a retinal break or tear that allows the liquid vitreous that fills the center of the eye ball to pass through the break and detach the retina.
    Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment
  8. Most common type of retinal detachment
    Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment
  9. Retinal detachment due to leakage from under the retina which crease fluid (exudate) that detaches the retina. 
    Exudative Retinal Detachment
  10. 2 things that can cause exudative retinal detachment:
    • Tumors
    • inflammatory disorders
  11. Due to pulling on the retina usually from fibro-vascular tissue within the vitreous cavity.
