  1. Tiny pit or DEPRESSION IN RETINA that is the region of CLEAREST VISION.
  2. CRANIAL NERVE carrying impulses from RETINA to BRAIN
  3. Point at which optic nerve fibers CROSS IN THE BRAIN
  4. Region at back of the eye where OPTIC NERVE MEETS THE RETINA. (blind spot of the eye b/c it contains only nerve fibers, no rods or cones)
  5. STRUCTURE SURROUNDING LENS connects the choroid and iris
  6. Pigmented (colored) layer that opens and closes to ALLOW MORE OR LESS LIGHT INTO THE EYE.
  7. Fibrous transparent layer of CLEAR TISSUE THAT EXTENDS OVER ANTERIOR PART OF EYEBALL.
  8. TOUGH WHITE OUTER COAT of the eyeball.
