IIPA accepted term

Absoption Ring

Now called Pupilary Ruff, is the Posterior Epithelium cells (cells behind the Iris) showing through. It appears as a darkish or orangish ring at the pupil's edge. epithelium cells

NO

Aqueous Humor

Asparagus Lacuna

Asparagus Lacuna  

Atonic Pupil

atonic pupil  

Autonomic Nerve Wreath (ANW)

Now called the Collarette. It is a well defined but NOT thick and ropey edging surrounding the pupil which placement should be about 1/3 the distance from the pupil to the sclera.

Collarette

Texture Types of ANW (Autonomic Nerve Wreath) or Collarette include: Thick and Ropey, Thin and Wispy, Absent or Obscure, Intermittent or Irregular, Funnel, Meerschaum, Double Collarette, Angle of Fuchs and Gateway Arch

Placement type Collarette Normal or Balanced, Tight or Constricted or Atonic or Floppy

 

The Collarette represents the connection of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system

NO

Biliary

Previously known as Mixed Billiary Constitutional main type. A product of the mating of a true blue Lymphatic Iris lineage and of a true brown Hematogenic eye genetics. Characterized by the brown coloration (with no blue showing through, not even in the contraction furrows) but with visible fibers (although fibers might not be as detectable or visible) of a typical lymphatic iris.

Examples of how a mixed genetics can manifest

BiliaryNot Biliary

The iris on the left is a biliary eye the one on the right is a lymphatic eye with heterochromia???

Any of these 4 iris come from mixed genetics.

Ciliary Muscle

. Ciliary Body – muscle (longitudinal,                                                         .   . ….circular and radial)

Choroid

Ciliary Layer is made up of longitudinal, circular and radial muscles which can cause the pupil to contract and dialate.

Ciliary Muscle

sphincture muscle of the eye

 

Choroid

Choroid – connective tissue and blood                                                                     .   vessels – nourishes the eye and provides

    circulation and nutrients

Cholesterol Ring

Now called Lipemic Diathesis (Corneal Arcus) Formally called Sodium/Cholesterol ring, Arcus Senilis... Doctors refer it to old age ring

Lipemic DiagthesidLipemic Diathesis

Constitutional Types

1.Lymphatic – Surface area problems such as: skin, mucosal membranes in lungs, digestive and urinary tracts and blood vessels…also Lymph tissue such as: tonsils, appendix, lymph nodes and spleen. (Blue)

Lymphatic Iris

2.Hematogenic – Blood, mineral deficiencies, heart, liver, spleen and bone marrow, digestive system and glandular systems.   Blood sugar imbalances. (Brown)

Hematogenic Iris

3.Biliary – Fibers are evident… Liver, lymph, digestion, allergies, constipation or diarrhea, gallbladder and fat digestion.  (Murky) Mixture of lymphatic and hematogenic linage.

1.functional (sensory) layers

Outer layer – pigmented cells to absorb covers the whole retina and as far forward, past the iris to the pupillary rough. Its purpose is to absorb light so it does not cause reflections that would distort vision

Inner layer – Newel layer which contains rods and cones?

 

Macula with cones and rods a membrane in the back of the eye which contains:

1.Rods – Conveys images in various tones of black and white.  Aids vision in poor lighting.

2.Cones -  Conveys finer images and color.
