Caption: Choroid layer of the eye. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a section through the choroid layer of the eye. A pigment cell (dark brown) is at upper centre. The choroid layer lies behind the sclera (white of the eye) and in front of the retina. It is highly vascular and supplies blood to the back of the eye. It is pigmented to absorb excessive light, preventing internal reflections that would form multiple images on the retina. Magnification: x1100 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
