most likely true:  

a) Thinnest at the anterior pole.  
b) Thick at the anterior pre-equatorial region. 
 c) Posterior pole is approximately 14 microns thick. 
 d) Anterior pole is 4 microns thick.

4)A 12 years old boy receiving long term treatment for spring catarrh, developed defective vision in both eyes. The likely cause is:

a. Posterior subcapsular cataract  
b. Retinopathy of prematurity  
c. Optic neuritis

5)Unilateral aphakia is likely to be corrected by any of the following except:  

a. Anterior chamber intraocular lens
b. Posterior chamber intraocular lens  
c. Contact tens  
d. Glasses

6)The best treatment for amblyopia is:  

a. Orthoptic exercises  
b. Occlusion  
c. Surgery  
d. Best treat after age 10 years

7)the origin of crystaline lens is:


8)which of the following best explains accommodation?

a. the lens decreases its anterior-posterior lens diameter therefore increase its refractive power 
b.relaxation of the circular ms. Of ciliary body results in pupil constriction and therefore helps in accommodation 
c. relaxation of the circular ms. Of ciliary body results in lens increase its refractive power and therefore helps in accommodation 
d.contraction of circular ms of ciliary body results in lens becoming more globular in shape

9)which part of lens capsule is thinnest:

a. posterior
b. equator 
c.anterior prephiry
d. anterior
10)what is the primary metasbolism of adult lens:

a. glycerol pathway
c.glucose monophosphate shunt
d. ketogenesis
