This stock medical exhibit begins with an overall silhouette view of the upper body with the head turned to the side revealing a lateral cut-away view of the skull. This image allows for a view of the blood supply to the right eye from the heart all the way up into the orbit. An enlarged lateral cut-away view of the right orbit is also included to illustrate the internal carotid artery, orbital vasculature, eye and optic nerve in greater detail. Labels identify the eye, internal carotid artery, common carotid artery, aorta, heart, posterior ciliary arteries, optic nerve, and central artery of the retina.
