Placement of Intraocular Lens with Blockage of Fluid Flow Within the Eye - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This exhibit features two sets of images comparing normal anatomy with the post-operative condition following the placement of the STAAR Sugical Implantable Collamer Lens. Each set of images consists of a sagittal (side cut-away) view of the eye and a anterior view of the eye. Normal Anatomy. The sagittal image includes a series of small blue arrows representing the circulation of aqueous fluid from the posterior chamber, between the lens and iris, out through the pupil and out through the trabecular network at the angle of the cornea. Another set of small red arrows are shown in a circular pattern pointing outward from the center of the posterior chamber representing normal intraocular pressure. The anterior view shows a completely normal eye. Post-operative Condition. The sagittal image shows the intraocular lens in place between the normal lens and the iris causing a complete blockage of the pupil. little blue arrows show that aqueous flow is blocked and that fluid cannot pass beyond the blocked pupil into the anterior chamber. The series of red arrows representing intraocular pressure is much bigger symbolizing the resulting increase in pressure. In the anterior view, the iris is semitransparent focusing on the outline of this rectangular intraocular lens and show that it completely blocks the pupil.
