Section of Retina

The nervous structures of the retina proper are supported by a series of nonnervous or sustentacular fibers, and, when examined microscopically by means of sections made perpendicularly to the surface of the retina, are found to consist of seven layers, named from within outward as follows:

  1. Stratum opticum.
  2. Ganglionic layer.
  3. Inner plexiform layer.
  4. Inner nuclear layer, or layer of inner granules.
  5. Outer plexiform layer.
  6. Outer nuclear layer, or layer of outer granules.
  7. Layer of rods and cones.
