Sample text

Intraocular fibrocellular proliferation may occur after a penetrating injury. Such proliferation may lead to vitreous/ su bretinal/ choroid al hemorrhage; traction retinal detachment; proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR), including anterior PVR (Fig 2-9); hypotony; and ultimately phthisis bulbi. Formation of proliferative intraocular membranes may affect the timing of vitreoretinal surgery. The timing of the drainage of a ciliochoroidal hemorrhage is based on lysis of the blood clot (10- 14 days).

The epithelium is nonkeratinizing stratified squamous, with goblet cells. The conjunctiva! epithelium is continuous with the corneal epithelium, but the latter has no goblet cells. In the forniceal and bulbar areas, the conjunctiva! epithelium is flat and regular, while in the palpebral area, it exhibits ridges (Fig 5-lA, B). The goblet cells of the epithelium are most numerous in the fornices and plica semilunaris (Fig 5-lC, D). Beneath the epithelium is the conjunctiva! stroma, or substantia propria, which is thickest in the fornices and thinnest covering the tarsus.
