Note the arteries (brighter red) emanating from the central optic disk. The larger caliber and darker retinal veins extend back to the optic disk. The vessels are evenly distributed. Note that the margins of the optic disk are sharp and clear. Friday, 6 September 2013 26 This is marked cupping of the optic disk indicative of glaucoma. Glaucoma results from increased intraocular pressure with damage to the ganglion cells and their axons. This pressure over time leads to deepening of the optic cup with excavation. The vessels shown here appear to "fall into" the deepened optic cup.

The lowest layer just above the connective tissue is the layer of rods and cones. Above this are layers of external and internal plexiform and nuclear lamina. The nerve fibers are at the top and collect together to enter the optic nerve at the optic disk. Friday, 6 September 2013 33 Courtesy of Max Snodderly, U...
