Anatomical terminology

The globe of the eye, or bulbus oculi, is the eyeball apart from its appendages.[1] A hollow structure, the bulbus oculi is composed of a wall enclosing a cavity filled with fluid with three coats: the Sclera, Choroid, and the Retina.[2] Normally, the bulbus oculi is bulb-like structure.[3] However, the bulbus oculi is not completely spherical. Its anterior surface, transparent and more curved, is known as the cornea of the bulbus oculi.
