    Description
    Immunohistochemistry of a monkey eye imaged with fluorescein conjugated ABA lectin staining demonstrates the lamellar structure pf the posterior vitreous cortex. During anomalous PVD, there can be splitting between these lamellae, a phenomenon known as vitreoschisis. (original magnification = 400x)
