The internal limiting membrane (ILM) and cortical vitreous of the rabbit and primate were studied with transmission electron microscopy following staining with the cationic dye, Alcian blue GX. An unusual feature of the cortical vitreal collagen fibril was its displacement from the ILM: it did not insert into the lamina densa. The separation between vitreal collagen and the ILM was especially noticeable in the rabbit eye, which possessed an extremely strong vitreal retinal attachment in the… CONTINUE READING
