Ophthalmology & Otolaryngology
Adjustment of the eye that allows a person to see various sizes of objects at diff. distances
reduction or dimness of vision w/no apparent organic cause; often referred to as lazy eye syndrome
procedure in which a mirrored optical instrument is used to visualize the filtration angle of the anterior chamber of the eye; the procedure is used to diagnose glaucoma.
Unit of measurement used in hearing examinations; a wave frequency equal to 1 cycle per second.
Any substance or medication that causes constriction of the pupil
TOPICAL ophthalmic medication that dilates the pupil; it is used in diagnostic procedures of the eye & as treatment for glaucoma.
A small pit in the center of the retina that is the center of clearest vision.
"external protection" The outermost layer of the eyeball which is made of a tough fibrous lining that protects the entire eyeball within the orbit.
"Light absorption and regulation of pupil width" The colored portion of the eye.
"protects eye" Helps protect the eye from trauma.
Maintains the shape of the posterior eyeball.
Thin mucous membrane that lines the eyelid and covers most of the outside of the eyeball.
"Distinguish light from dark and perceive shape and movement" Structures in the retina that form the light-sensitive elements.
The bony cavity that protects and supports the eye.
"Light Refraction" The clear window that allows light to enter the eye.
Helps keep irritants out of the eyes.
"blood supply" The posterior portion of the middle layer of the eye that contains many blood vessels that supply nutrients to the outer layers of the retina.
"Produce tears" Located in the superior out portion of the upper eyelid and secretes tears.
"Color vision" Structures in the retina that make the perception of color possible.
Regulates the shape of the lens.
Lines the margins of the eyelids and help trap foreign particles.
Passageway for tears to drain from the eye into the nasal cavity.
"light refraction" A transparent biconvex body that helps focus light after it passes through the cornea
Composed of neurons that convert light into neurological impulses.
One of a pair of nerves that transmit visual stimuli to (crainial nerve II) the brain
region at the back of the eye where the optic nerve meets the retina; it is considered the blind spot of the eye,
Pupil, equal, round, reactive to light, accommodation
- the formation of spongy bone in the labyrinth of the ear.
- causes the auditory ossicles to become fixed & unable to vibrate when sound enters the ear
Medicine or substance capable of damaging the 8th cranial nerve or the organs of hearing & balance
a usually chronic, recurrent skin disease marked by red patches covered w/silvery scales
an excessive discharge of sebum from the sebaceous glands, forming greasy scales or cheesy plugs on the body
an instrument used to measure intraocular pressure
- a licensed medical physician who can diagnose eye disorders, prescribe meds, conduct screenings, prescribed glasses or contact lenses, & perform optic surgery.
- You go to this person if you have a eye injury.
trained to fill prescriptions written for corrective lenses by grinding the lenses & dispensing eyewear
can conduct eye examinations, diagnose vision problems & eye disease, & treat visual defects through corrective lenses & eye exercises.
- Infection of the Eye
- Corneal abrasion
- Macular Degeneration
failure o the eyes to track together, which means that both eyes do not look in the same direction at the same time.
A constant involuntary movement of one or both eyes
Infections of the Eye
a purulent infection of a sebaceous gland of the eyelid
a small cyst that results from a blockage of a bio
inflammation of the cornea that results in superficial ulcerations
inflammation conjunctiva caused by irritation, allergy , bacterial infection. (pinkeye)
inflammation of the glands & lash follicles along the margins of the eyelids that may be caused by staphoccolis infections, allergies, or irritation
DISORDERS OF THE EYEBALL
- Corneal abrasion
- Macular Degeneration
the transparent out covering of the eye, is prone to abrasions
- Inflammation, tearing, photophobia.
- caused by a forgein body in the eue or a direct trauma
a cloudy opaque area in the normally clear lens of the eye that blocks the passage of light into the retina, causing impaired vision.
increased intraocular pressure
a progressive deterioration of the macula lutea. loss of central vision
What is the eye test

Anatomy of the ear
- Outer or External Ear
- Middle Ear
- Inner Ear
Outer or External Ear
- auricle or pinna
- fleshy part of the ear
- external auditory canal (tube from auricle-tympanic membrane(eardrum))
- merring jutis- ustatia tube
tympanic cavity - 3 bones helps sound vibrate so you can hear.
labyrinth divided into
- semicircular canals
- maintains equilibrium
- corti-receptor sounds, sound impulses
- 8th canal- transmits impulses to the medulla oblongata
Hearing Loss Disorders
- Impacted cerumen
- Meniers Disease
- swimmers ear
- seborrhea or psoriasis: trauma to the ear canal or continues use of earplugs or earphones
- inflammation of the mid ear from fluid behind the tympanic membrane
- wax in the ear canal
- Debrox drops are used to help sofen the wax
- condition with the 8th canal nerve
- control balance
- swelling and edema in endolymphatic sac
- patients experience nausea vomiting, & problems with balance
Hearing Loss due to
- conductive impairment
- sensorineural impairments
caused by a problem that originates in the external or mid ear & prevents sound b=vibrations from passing through the external auditory canal, limiting tympanic membranes vibrations or interfering with the passage of bone-conducted sound in the mid ear.
damage to the organ of corti or the auditory nerve & prevents vibrations from being converted into the nervous stimuli
- Tuning Fork
- Sensorineural hearing
detects conductive or Sensorineural hearing defects
performed to remove excessive or impacted cerumen, to remove a foreignbody, or to treat the inflamed ear with an antiseptic solution.
Ear Irrigation Med Install
installed into the ear to soften impacted cerumen, relieve pain, or to treat infectious pathogens
Summerize the nose & throat examination
an inspection of the nasal cavity, this is followed by visual examination of the throat & the nasopharynx. Throat cultures may be done to determine whether a streptococcal infection is present. The anterior & posterior neck regions are palpated for abnormalities
