Capillary lamina - Lamina choroidocapillaris

Description

The capillary lamina (choroidocapillar laminna) inner layer of the choroid proper, consists of an exceedingly fine capillary plexus, formed by the short ciliary vessels; the net-work is closer and finer in the posterior than in the anterior part of the choroid. About 1.25 cm. behind the cornea its meshes become larger, and are continuous with those of the ciliary processes.
