Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of the main structural and functional properties of the ocular vasculature. Four major circulatory systems within the eye are considered, namely those nourishing the retina, the optic nerve head, the choroid, and the anterior segment. Some aspects related to vascular regulation and innervation are also discussed, along with outstanding questions that remain a matter of debate.
