Ocular Physiology:                            

Eye is a sensory organ. Sensory organ is an organ that contains sensory receptors and accessory structures, that contributes to the sensory function of the receptor, included in the sensory organ. In the case of eye, the sensory part is the retina which contains photoreceptors, bipolar, horizontal, amacrine, and ganglionic cells. The other structures of the eye contribute to the function of the eye (vision).

The physiology of the eye, it is an obligatory step to study its structure, because structure- function interrelationship is inseparable .Our approach in studying ocular physiology in this course will be by studying the function of each part of the eye and the function, fulfilled by that structure. The eye ball is composed of three layers (Sclera, cornea, choroid, uvula, and retina) and three transparent media (two chambers of aqueous humour, and vitreous humour). Externally, the eye is protected by eyelids, eye lashes, and eye brows .It is found in the orbit of the skull, and this is an additional protective factor as thus is surrounded by bones.

Ocular Surface Pharmacology:

Ocular Pharmacology includes the both pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics of the ocular drug to be administered. Biological and therapeutic effect of the drug, that is Mechanism of Action. Most drugs act by binding to regulatory macromolecules, usually neurotransmitters or hormone receptors or enzymes. If the drug is working at the receptor level, it can be agonist or antagonist. If the drug is working at the enzyme level, it can be activator or inhibitor. Absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion of the drug comes under pharmacokinetics. A drug can be delivered to ocular tissue as locally (Eye drop, Ointment, Peri ocular injection, Intraocular injection), Systemically(Orally, IV). The factors that influence local drug penetration into ocular tissue are 1. Drug concentration and solubility shows higher the concentration the better the penetration. (pilocarpine 1?4% but limited by reflex tearing) 2.Viscosity: Addition of methylcellulose and polyvinyl alcohol increases drug penetration by increasing the contact time with the cornea and altering corneal epithelium 3.Lipid solubility: because of the lipid rich environment of the epithelial cell membranes, the higher lipid solubility the more the penetration, surfactants, pH, drug tonicity, molecular weight and size.

Immunology and ocular infection:

Ocular immunology is a profoundly concentrated branch of solution committed to diagnosing and treating patients with incendiary eye sicknesses. These infections can somewhat diminish vision or prompt extreme vision loss (Blindness). Countless contaminations, minute living beings, parasites, and developments that can assault the human body are furthermore prepared for striking the surface or within the eye. The general slant for immunologic disease to impact the eye gets from different parts, for instance, Antibody-subordinate and immunizer mediated contaminations, Uveitis, intraocular disturbance and cell-intervened disorders.

Ophthalmologists utilize the general term, uveitis, when alluding to the scope of incendiary maladies that influence the uvea. The inside of the eye needs lymph vessels yet is very vascularized, and numerous insusceptible cells live in the uvea, including for the most part macrophages, dendritic cells, and pole cells. These cells battle off intraocular contaminations, and intraocular aggravation can show as uveitis or retinitis. The cornea of the eye is immunologically an extremely extraordinary tissue. Likewise, uveitis is utilized to portray any provocative infection that produces swelling and demolishes eye tissues, including inside the retina. It's normally connected with systemic infections, for example, rheumatoid joint inflammation.

Retinal pharmacology:

Pharmacology of GABA receptors of retinal dopaminergic neurons. When the vertebrate retina is empowered by light, a class of interplexiform cells discharge dopamine, a modulator in charge of neural adjustment to light. In the in place retina, dopamine discharge can be pharmacologically controlled with agonists and adversaries at GABA receptors, and dopaminergic cells get contribution from GABA ergic amacrines. GABA is the principle inhibitory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate CNS.

Retinal disorders:

Retina is a part of CNS. It is a straightforward thin layer of tissue that lines back of eye and sends visual messages through optic nerve to the mind. Light striking the retina starts a course of compound and electrical occasions that at last trigger nerve driving forces .Macula situated in the focal point of retina contains high thickness of photoreceptors which gives sharp and focal vision. Retinal issue may influence the imperative tissue macula which may influence the vision which may some of the time cause genuine visual impairment.

It contains a substantial number of light-sensitive cells and other nerve cells that get and form visual information. Your retina sends this information to your cerebrum through your optic nerve, enabling you to see. Retinal degenerative issue, for instance, Age-related macular degeneration and partially blind macular degeneration affecting energetic and old from various social orders, races and ethnicities. The central zone of the retina contains a high thickness of shading fragile photoreceptor cells called cones which are accountable for shading vision and in this way any distortion and change in the central domain of the retina will provoke colour vision defects. On the other hand illnesses like Diabetic retinopathy and Retinal tumours can moreover be accountable for the enduring vision disaster if it is not treated on time.

Pharmacology of ocular drugs:

Pharmacology of visual medications is the review and use of pharmaceuticals to both break down and treat sicknesses of the eye. There are distinctive microbial illnesses of the eye like viral, steroids, Fungal pollutants of the cornea, which are remarkable yet may occur after agrarian injuries or in hot and soggy climates, orbital mycosis is even rarer, and generally occurs after spread from the Para nasal sinuses. Growing age, debility, or immunosuppression enhances likelihood and reality of sickness. Herpes simplex ailments conveying, for example, dendritic corneal ulcers can be treated with acyclovir.

Pharmacology manages with increase in efficiency, safety and rationality of drug use and discovery of new medications. Specificity pharmacology describes mechanism of action of drugs, distinguish the destiny of medications in the body (ADME), scan for new medications. Pharmacology looks at the earliest preclinical pharmaceuticals for instance animal (trial or experimental pharmacology), later in humans (clinical pharmacology). By studying the toxic effects of medications is occupied with toxicology.
