The Sclerotic coat is a thick,
tough, white fibrous structure, the
front part of which is commonly
called the white of tho eye. Thia
is covered with a very thin, trans-
1 parent membrane, caled the Con
'junetiva, widen gives a brilliant
! luster to tho white of the eye. The
I Sch rotic joins the cornea in frout
; and the optic nerve in back where
it i thickest.
The next or middle coat, the
Choroid, is composed of a dense
j network of minute capillaries and
j veins. .Uctweeri these nro cells
'containing dirk colored pigment.
I The Choroid extends as far for-
ward a3 the ciliary muscle, and
j there ends in a little plaited frill
around the Crystaline leus called
the ciliary processes.
The third, or inner coat of the
eye, cdled the Retina, is a direct
continuation of the Optic nerve
which comes from the bruin. The
i Ki'tim lines thy whole interior of the
oveball as Jar forward ai the Ciliary
