Focusing may be more difficult because less light enters the eye. He may have difficulty distinguishing colors due to yellowing of the lens. Vision may be fuzzy because of changes in the retina. Night vision can become impaired. The patient may see floaters or “sparks.”Nice job!31-*Vision TestingProfessionals includeOphthalmologist – medical doctor who is an eye specialistOptometrist – provides vision screening and diagnostic testingOpticians – fills vision prescriptions for glasses and contacts31-*Vision Screening TestsMyopia – impairment of distance visionEyeball is too long Light focuses anterior to retinaSnellen chartNormal vision 20/20Hyperopia – impairment of near vision Eyeball is shorter Light focused posterior to retinaTest using a handheld chart with various sizes of printPresbyopia Impairment due to agingLoss of lens elasticity31-*Vision Screening Tests (cont.)Contrast sensitivityDistinguish shades of grayTestingPelli-Robson contrast sensitivity chartVistech Consultants vision contrast systemDetect cataracts or retinal problems before sharpness is impairedColor vision Color-blindness May be inheritedMore common in malesTestsIshihara color systemRichmond pseudoisochromatic color testDifficulties may indicate retinal or optic nerve disease31-*Apply Your KnowledgeWhat is the difference between myopia and hyperopia and what is presbyopia? What effect does each have on vision?ANSWER: If the patient has myopia, the eyeball is elongated and light focuses in front of the retina. She will have difficulty seeing far away. If she has hyperopia, the eyeball is shorter than normal and light focuses behind the retina. With presbyopia, the lens loses elasticity due to aging, resulting in the inability to see things close up.

The information is brought to the gustatory cortex of the parietal lobe of the brain for interpretation.31.5 The four primary taste sensations are, sweet, salty, sour and bitter. Each has a “specialized” area of the tongue where each taste is most pronounced. The fifth recognized taste sensation is umami.31-*In Summary (cont.)31.6 The eye is composed of three layers. The sclera is the outer protective layer and includes the cornea. The middle vascular layer is the choroid, consisting of the iris, pupil, ciliary body, and lens, and is the area of light regulation and focusing. The innermost layer is the retina containing the rods and cones, the optic nerve, and optic disk. This is where the nerve impulse is picked up and brought to the brain for interpretation. The accessory organs are the orbits, eyelids, conjunctivas, lacrimal apparatus, and extrinsic eye muscles, all of which are protective for the eye.31-*In Summary (cont.)31.7 The cornea, lens, and fluids focus light on the retina. The retina converts the image into nerve impulses, which are transmitted by the optic nerve to the brain for interpretation.31.8 Eye safety and injury prevention includes, but is not limited to, adequate lighting and availability of hand rails, keeping personal and sharp items out of reach of children, wearing of safety goggles when operating power equipment and using chemicals, and not mixing cleaning agents.31-*In Summary (cont.)31.9 Changes in the aging eye include, but are not limited to, diminishing fat tissue, decreased tear production, thinner and dryer conjunctiva, brown spots in the sclera, changes in the iris resulting in smaller pupil, lens becoming denser and more rigid, as well as lens and retinal changes causing fuzziness of vision and difficulty distinguishing colors.31.10 Ophthalmologists (M.D.), optometrists (O.D.), and opticians are all professionals who deal with eye and vision health. 31-*In Summary (cont.)31.11 All treatments for eye problems include use of sterile technique and extreme caution to protect the delicate tissues of the eye. Eye irrigations and medication installations are common treatments. Instruction on these techniques will take place in the Drug Administration chapter.31-*In Summary (cont.)31.12 Common diseases and disorders of the eye include amblyopia, astigmatism, cataracts, conjunctivitis, hyperopia, myopia and presbyopia. More detailed information on the signs, symptoms, and treatments for these conditions, as well as other common eye disorders, is found in the Pathophysiology section of this chapter, directly after the A&P section on the eye.31-*In Summary (cont.)31
