Sensory System Presentation

We as humans have five senses. A sense is the physiological capacity that allows living organisms to perceive what is around us. Sight is one of the most important senses that we possess. The human eye is an organ that allows us to see. The human eye is a very unique and complex structure , and it is one of the most developed senses that we have. Damage to any structural part of the eye can affect the bodies nervous system severely.
Astigmatism - The cornea is misshaped causing vision to be blurry (Foley & Matlin, n.d.)

Optic Disc
Glaucoma - Damage to the optic disc ( in the retina) that causes vision loss. It is caused by the build up of pressure in the eye (Foley & Matlin, n.d.)

Presbyopia- Thickening and hardening of the lens causes difficulty in focusing ( Foley & Matlin, n.d.)

Cataract - Cloudy Lens ( Foley & Matlin, n.d.)
Damage to the Eye Structure
Causes Diseases
Malignant Perivascular Melanoma Mimicking
Primary Central Nervous System Vasculitis
Rare disease over the age of 50 years
3-5 % of people affected
Pathogenesis unknown & misunderstood
