Abstract

This sequential microdissection and stereo scanning electron microscopy revealed that the major ciliary processes are supplied by two types of arterioles arising from the major arterial circle. Constricted anterior arterioles supply anterior and marginal aspects of the processes as well as interprocess capillary beds. Less constricted posterior arterioles feed capillaries confined to the base of the major processes as well as minor ciliary processes via posterior interprocess connections. Choroidal veins were seen to directly drain both anterior and posterior interprocess capillary beds.
