Small retinal arterioles in the pig retina were occluded by argon laser photocoagulation and the morphology and topography of the resulting lesions studied by ophthalmoscopy, histology, and electron microscopy. Two days after laser coagulation ischaemic necrosis of the inner retina was observed in the territory of occluded arterioles, and swollen axon terminals packed with cytoplasmic organelles were found in the retinal nerve-fibre layer on the peripheral border of the infarcts and their… CONTINUE READING
