Before we discuss vision disorders, it will be a good idea to review your anatomy and physiology book or do a quick web search to refresh your memory and understanding of the following terms: cornea, sclera, iris, ciliary body, choroid, aqueous humor, vitreous humor, optic disk, and optic nerve. Also review the retina and the cell types found in the retina.
