Arrows to abnormal areas of glaucomatous eye

This image shows the eye of a rabbit with glaucoma and staphyloma. The white arrow goes to the staphyloma that is an abnormal protrusion of the contents of the eye through a weak point in the eyeball. The protrusion is generally dark in colour, due to the colour of the inner structures of the eye. The red arrow goes to a congested episcleral blood vessel. The blue arrow goes to horizontal lines in the front of the eye. These are 'Haab's striae' . The red arrow goes to an extra flap or notch of abnormal eyelid (eyelid dysplasia) that can roll in and irritate the cornea.
