Dissection of eye
Ciliary body and iris, posterior view
The lens has been removed to expose the iris and pupil. Remains of the vitreous body are visible at the periphery of the view (posterior to the ora serrata). The delicate hyloid membrane (8) is visible as a thin layer which covers the outer margin of the corona ciliaris but has been cut away medially. The cut edge is indicated by a white line in the drawing and the membrane is drawn only in a small area at the right (9).
