Missing anatomical terms

Common anatomical terms for the eye such as sclera and retina are not available. Retina detachment is available but is wrong. This dictionary defines it as a "separation of the retina from the choroid." Not even close! It is a seperation of the neurosensory retina, commonly referred to simply as the retina, from the non-neurosenesory retina, which is called the RPE (retinal pigmented epithelium). In addition, episclera is listed as "the most superficial layer of the sclera." Wrong! The episclera is not part of the sclera! These definitions are wrong. This dictionary is not accurate let alone authoritative and cannot be trusted. It is, therefore, of no positive value.
