Introduction:

We have 5 special-senses: Touch, Hearing, Smell, Taste, and Sight. Each organ is concerned with one or the other. To have the sense of touch, we have the skin; sense of hearing is associated with the ear; sense of smell is con¬ducted by the nose; sense of taste is felt by the tongue; and eye is the organ of the sense of sight.
Sight is a boon of nature to us. We can very well understand the horrible situation if sight is not there. Like all other organs of the body, eye, too, is subject to a number of ailments. To have a full understanding of the ailments of the eye, we should study the structure of eye and its appendages in a sufficient degree of detail.
In view of the above, a description of the eye and its appendages is given here:
The optical or second cranial nerve is the sensory nerve of sight. The nerve arises from the ganglion cells in the retina which converge to form the optic nerve. The nerve passes backwards and medially and runs through the optic canal to enter the cranial cavity and thence to the optic chiasma. The optic nerve has three coverings, similar to the meninges of the brain. The outer one is tough and fibrous and blends with the sclera, the middle covering is delicate like the arachnid mater and the inner one is vascular.
When the fibers reach the optic chiasma, half of the fibers converge to reach the opposite side of the optic tract. By means of this arrangement of fibers eachoptic nerve is related to both sides of the brain. The visual centre lies in the cortex of the occipital lobe of the brain. The eyeball is the organ of sight. It is con¬tained in the bony orbit and protected by appendages such as the eyelids, eyebrows, conjunctiva and the lacrimal apparatus.
