12. Two instruments are used to test patient blood pressure.

13. The interior portion of the eyeball that may be seen on ophthalmoscopy.

14. Controls the focusing power of the eye by changing the shape of the lens.

15. The instrument that contains lenses and can be used to determine a spectacle correction.

16. At bedtime

17. Numerous different surgeries that facilitate the escape of excess aqueous humor from the eye to lower the intraocular pressure and a few that lower IOP by decreasing the production of aqueous humor.

19. A test that allows a doctor to see inside the back of the eye and other structures using a magnifying instrument and a light source.

20. The gel that fills the eye and allows it to maintain its shape. Also serves as a clear pathway for light when it travels from the lens to the retina.
