    lesion of cornea
  38. diabetic retinopathy
    noninflammatory degeneration of retina, characterized by retinal ischemia, hemmorhages and exudation

    displacement of eye out of its orbit
  50. ptosis
    dropping or falling of eyelid
  51. retinal detachment
    separation of retina from choroid that causes loss of vision; caused by abscesses or hemmorhages in vitreous body, trauma, complications of intraocular surgery, inflammation or tumors of choroid, and passage of vitreous or aqueous humor through hole in retina
  52. strabismus
    deviation of eye, with various forms called tropias (meaning turning), including estropia (turning inward; also called convergent strabismus or crossed eyes and seen in some Siamese cats); extropia (turning outward; also called wall-eyed), hypertropia (upward deviation of one eye); and hypotropia (downard deviation of one eye)
