The strong horny transparent membrane in the fore part of the eye, through which the rays of light pass.
By Nuttall, P.Austin.
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.
