Optic papilla

From Biology-Online Dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search



The portion of the retina not sensitive to light because it does not contain photoreceptors such as rods and cones thus creates a break in the visual field; it is also the point from where the major blood vessels supplying the retina enters and the ganglion cell axons of optic nerve come together (thus forming the optic nerve)
