The fine fibres that make up the supporting framework of the retina in many animals and humans. These radially-arranged fine fibers are comprised of sustentacular cells, and span through the thickness of the retina, from the internal to the external limiting membranes.


The fibers form a dense, continuous meshwork that support the different layers of nervous elements in the retina.
