Term Definition

A hormone produced by the corpus luteum which inhibits the pituitary gland from producing Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Luteinizing Hormone (LH). This terminates the mating and fertile period in the "Heat" cycle.


IOP stands for Intraocular Pressure. Cells within the eye produce fluid that support and feed the tissues of the eye. The fluid drains naturally through the iridocorneal angle. IOP is a reflection of the balance of fluid production and drainage. (See aqueous humor, tonometry, ciliary body)

Iridiocorneal Angle

The Iridiocorneal angle is the angle formed at the base of the iris where the iris attaches to the cornea and serves as the drainage opening for aqueous humor from the anterior chamber of the eye. (See anterior chamber, aqueous humor, IOP, gonioscopy.)
