Description

The bulbar conjunctiva (Bulbar Portion)- Upon the sclera, the conjunctiva is loosely connected to the bulb of the eye; it is thin, transparent, destitute of papillæ, and only slightly vascular. Upon the cornea, the conjunctiva consists only of epithelium, constituting the epithelium of the cornea. Lymphatics arise in the conjunctiva in a delicate zone around the cornea, and run to the ocular conjunctiva.
