3 10° Eccentricity Horizontal sections through the photoreceptor layer at the level of the inner segments, for several eccentricities. Small black dots in the sections at 5 deg and 10 deg are rods, the larger cells are cones. At 0 deg the cells are all cones. For more details see: Curcio, C. A. and K. A.
