Circular fibres



A radially-arranged fiber comprised of sustentacular cells. The fiber spans through the thickness of the retina and provides support to the nervous elements in the retina.


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

Word origin: after Heinrich Müller, a German anatomist, who first described it in 1851
