Fig. 6. Peripheral fundus showing preequatorial retina, ora serrata, and inner surface of ciliary body (smooth portion, pars plana; portion with ciliary processes, pars plicata). Ora serrata in this nasal sector shows largely short dentate processes that are typical; that is, they align with valleys between ciliary processes. On right, a giant dentate process is atypical; that is, it aligns with a ciliary process. Aligned with and posterior to the atypical dentate process is a focus of retinal thinning (peripheral retinal excavation). (× 14.)
