The cysts form within the outer plexiform layer
and extend circumferentially.
Additional measurements were performed at points 1 and 2 mm distance to the central fovea (from the outer plexiform layer
to the apex of the retina with pigmented epithelium) in each quadrant by using computer-based caliper measurement tool of the SD-OCT system.
The plexiform layer
consists of the axons from receptor cells, efferent nerve fibers originating in the optic lobe, and the glial cells.
In the normal retina (Figure 6(a)), anti-GABA antibody labels the inner plexiform layer
(IPL), the amacrine cells located on the inner lamina of the INL, and the horizontal cells located on the outer lamina of the INL.
Mr Mody added: "We believe this is the only commercially available means of segmenting the ganglion cell layer and the inner plexiform layer

and the optic nerve trunk (Kataoka et al.
