The anterior chamber (AC) is the fluid-filled space inside the eye between the iris and the cornea's innermost surface, the endothelium.
The basement membrane is a thin, fibrous, extracellular matrix of tissue that separates the lining of an internal or external body surface from underlying connective tissue in metazoans.
The Bowman's membrane (Bowman's layer, anterior limiting lamina, anterior elastic lamina) is a smooth, acellular, nonregenerating layer, located between the superficial epithelium and the stroma in the cornea of the eye.
The cornea is the transparent front part of the eye that covers the iris, pupil, and anterior chamber.
The corneal endothelium is a single layer of cells on the inner surface of the cornea.
Epithelium is one of the four basic types of animal tissue, along with connective tissue, muscle tissue and nervous tissue.
Eyes are organs of the visual system.
Fuchs' dystrophy, also referred to as Fuchs' corneal endothelial dystrophy (FCED) and Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy (FED), is a slowly progressing corneal dystrophy that usually affects both eyes and is slightly more common in women than in men.
Haab's striae, or Descemet's tears, are horizontal breaks in the Descemet membrane associated with congenital glaucoma.
Jean Descemet is a French physician (1732–1810) who first described the Descemet's membrane.
Kayser–Fleischer rings (KF rings) are dark rings that appear to encircle the iris of the eye.
Pierre Demours (1702 – June 26, 1795) was a French physician, zoologist and translator.
The sclera, also known as the white of the eye, is the opaque, fibrous, protective, outer layer of the human eye containing mainly collagen and some elastic fiber.
The substantia propria (or stroma of cornea) is fibrous, tough, unyielding, and perfectly transparent.
Wilson's disease is a genetic disorder in which copper builds up in the body.
