  • The lamina cribrosa (LC) is a tissue in the posterior eye with a complex trabecular microstructure. This tissue is of great research interest, as it is likely the initial site of retinal ganglion cell axonal damage in glaucoma. Unfortunately, the LC is difficult to access experimentally, and thus imaging techniques in tandem with image processing have emerged as powerful tools to study the microstructure and biomechanics of this tissue. Here, we present a staining approach to enhance the… CONTINUE READING
