Contact lenses are worn on, touching, the sclera over the iris. There are risks associated with contact lens wear.

Yes, I believe palpebral conjunctiva. There is also ocular conjunctiva.

There is a reason that Gray's Anatomy is 1300 pages.

Bulbar or ocular conjunctiva is present over sclera ,right?But my question is "is Bulbar or ocular conjunctiva transparent?Because nothing pinkish or of any other color appears on sclera except white surface which(white color)is of sclera .
