I misspelled retina as retna and ritna. I am dishonored!
Mar 9th, 2009 at 05:00 GMT
7/18, I feel I got all the answers someone not versed in medicine *should* get. So what are rods and cones then if they don't appear as answers here?
Mar 9th, 2009 at 05:19 GMT
Super hard! Yet sporcle is still bringin' it! @mitch - what is the seventh that a non-medical-type "should" get. I got the top six, but NO idea what vitreous body is.
Mar 9th, 2009 at 05:29 GMT
@mitch - rods and cones are photoreceptor cells found in the retina, so i'm assuming there wouldn't be a good way to label them as anatomical parts of the eye!
Mar 9th, 2009 at 06:04 GMT
Mar 9th, 2009 at 08:50 GMT
yep - got the 7 that my non-medical knowledge allowed. But i am a speccy, 4-eyed, bicycle face, so maybe i've picked up these from my regular optician visits.
Mar 9th, 2009 at 08:58 GMT
Excellent quiz. I really need to brush up on high school anatomy...
Mar 9th, 2009 at 09:02 GMT
I learned Vitreous Humor not Vitreous Body.
Comment below threshold:
Mar 9th, 2009 at 09:35 GMT
Eye felt like a bit if a cretina after doing this...
Mar 9th, 2009 at 10:13 GMT
I missed LENS. *bangs head on the wall*
Mar 9th, 2009 at 10:15 GMT
And conjunctiva, which is only significant because I was off work and stuck in a dark room for a MONTH with conjunctivitis. You'd think I'd remember after all that boredom.
Mar 9th, 2009 at 10:31 GMT
i onyl got 7, which is bad since im supposed to be versed in eye anatomy, both human an non, lol. in my defence, i was taught different words for some parts, but mostly, i think i just need to brush up!! awesome quiz though, more like it please!!
Mar 9th, 2009 at 10:45 GMT
@Saver - I didn't say that the seven I got were those answers, just that I got them ;) I think the top six are reasonable. I got vitreous as well, not particularly sure why I knew that :P
Mar 9th, 2009 at 12:36 GMT
I've had conjunctivitis so much in life, when I typed in "conjunctiva" I felt like the Slumdog Millionaire.
Mar 9th, 2009 at 13:43 GMT
i got 10, but not the sclera. never heard of it. what is it?
Mar 9th, 2009 at 13:47 GMT
A lot more detailed than the heart one, I'm impressed. :D
Mar 9th, 2009 at 14:57 GMT
@gopaladins: The sclera is just the white of your eye :)
Mar 9th, 2009 at 15:09 GMT
I get nauseous just looking at the diagram. I'm a little like Rachel on Friends - can't stand getting drops put in or people getting near my eye. I'm such a baby, lol.
Mar 9th, 2009 at 15:56 GMT
why doesn't it accept eye-juice? and i also new vitreous humour instead of vitreous body, but the point is moot considering it accepts "vitreous"
Mar 9th, 2009 at 16:38 GMT
Got the same top 6 that most people did.
Mar 9th, 2009 at 17:04 GMT
Another top sixer. Although I did know a couple of the others after the answers popped up.
Mar 9th, 2009 at 17:57 GMT
@davidr. You've got some nerve putting those puns here. Let's try to retina modicum of dignity and focus on the quiz. Eye don't appreciate your humour, vitreous or otherwise. In fact, I don't think I've heard anything Cornea. Furthermore, there's no need to co-rectus when our answers are not im-Macula-te. Iris my case.
Mar 9th, 2009 at 18:46 GMT
i am studying dentistry so i knew the rectus muscles but not the pupil, *hangs head in shame*
Mar 9th, 2009 at 18:54 GMT
@RobH: Fovea love of God, stop!
Mar 9th, 2009 at 20:07 GMT
This is a bizarre illustration. The cross-section with the rectus muscles labeled should be completely separate from the main illustration, not superimposed on it.
Mar 9th, 2009 at 20:17 GMT
How the hell is 'Cornea' more remembered than 'pupil' and 'iris'? Those were the only two I got because I don't know eye anatomy :P
Mar 9th, 2009 at 20:26 GMT
Also, aqueous humor exists in both the anterior and posterior chambers; vitreous humor is contained in the posterior cavity (so that should be an acceptable answer); and optic disc can also be called the optic papilla.
Mar 9th, 2009 at 21:15 GMT
There was a point in time where I could have gotten all 18, but alas, I got only 4... cool quiz =p
Mar 9th, 2009 at 21:31 GMT
@RobH: Your puns were the best part of this quiz. Hats off to you.
Mar 9th, 2009 at 21:34 GMT
@Melissa - I am also squeemish about eyes & I'm a 6'2" guy! The number of people who've had conjunctiveness probably outnumbers those who got conjunctiva.
Mar 9th, 2009 at 21:45 GMT
Brilliant quiz, brilliant puns Davidr and RobH!
Mar 10th, 2009 at 00:08 GMT
Interesting organ, the eye, I enjoy the anatomy quizes, and hope to see more.
Mar 10th, 2009 at 03:15 GMT
Can't believe I missed conjunctiva! Also, tried superior chamber instead of posterior. Knew the muscles, but couldn't get the whole rectal thing down...guess I associate that with brown 'eyes' only. Oh well, 13 out of 18 ain't bad for a guy that's never taken bio!
Mar 10th, 2009 at 12:07 GMT
I got 10, which isn't bad considering it must be 50 years since I learned this stuff. Never heard of the "optic disc" - it used to be called "blind spot" (or possibly "red spot" or "black spot" or some other coloured spot).
Mar 23rd, 2009 at 00:18 GMT
FOVEA CENTRALIS!? WHERE IS THAT
Jul 5th, 2009 at 20:46 GMT
Vet Student, who only got 14. Never seen the recti muscles drawn in on sketches... and didn't see the label for pupil. Blind Spot really really really should be a synonym for Optic Disc - really - but I did get it. Also missed macula though, thought it was the same as fovea centralis. Reading up the distinction seems a little arbitrary, but c'est la vie.
Aug 19th, 2009 at 09:38 GMT
Damn, I'm really good at anatomy and all.. in Swedish! So I came in here thought I'd master this quix and ended up with 4 right answers... English glosories please!
Sep 9th, 2009 at 00:13 GMT
Isn't 'Uvea' something?
Oct 7th, 2009 at 19:10 GMT
is there a way to create games like this, with the image?? i want to make more anatomy quizes, sporcle dearest!
Oct 7th, 2009 at 23:49 GMT
oo.kk there goes my sleep for about a month lol kind of creepy we are going to make a real life brain atonomy?
