One of the coats of the eye, so called because it has some resemblance to horn. It is termed transparent to distinguish it from the opake- Cornea opaca or Sclerotic. It is convex, anteriorly; concave, posteriorly; forming nearly one-fifth of the anterior part of the eye, and representing a segment of a sphere about seven lines and a half, or in. 0.625 in diameter. It seems to be constituted of laminae in superposition, but of the precise number anatomists are not agreed. Henle assigns it four; the third, a very sold cartilaginous lamella, being called Membrane de Demours or M. de Descemet: see Aqueous humour. Messrs. Todd and Bowman assign it five layers.
