The palpebral conjunctiva is known to be a part of the conjunctiva. This is a clear membrane and the main goal of this is to coat the inside portion of the eyelids. There is another membrane that coats the outer area of the eye called ocular conjunctiva.

There are some people who have issues with their conjunctivas because of a disease called conjunctival concretions. These come in small and yellow-white lesions that may affect different people.

This is a disease that is more common for the elderly. If this would be detected early, there are different treatments that are possible in order to prevent this condition from occurring.

Palpebral conjunctiva-the palpebral conjunctiva is the thin membrane that lines the eyelid. it is continuous with the bulbar conjunctiva which lines the eyeball. the orbital septum is a weak membrane that spans from the tarsal plates to the margins of the orbit where it becomes continuous with the periosteum. it contains orbital fat and can limit the spread of infection in the orbit. the periorbita is the periosteum lining covering the bones forming the orbit. the sclera is the outer fibrous layer of the eyeball. finally, the tarsal plate is a thin, cardboard-like layer of connective tissue in the eyelids which forms the skeleton of the eyelids.
