Both the emitted yellow-green fluorescence and reflected blue light from structures that do not contain fluorescein exit the eye and return to the camera. A yellow-green (barrier) filter on the camera lens blocks the reflected blue light, permitting only the yellow-green light, which has originated from the fluorescein molecules, into the camera. Digital imaging systems allow easy image archiving and retrieval, thus offering the capability of quickly comparing images longitudinally. To interpret a fluorescein angiogram, it is vital to understand retinal vasculature.

It terminates at the histologists' limbus and is thinnest near the limbus and equator and in the peripapillary area. The sclera is normally permeable to the passage of molecules in both directions. Fluid is thought to leave the eye through the sclera. Scleral permeability allows drugs to be delivered to the eye by means of injection into the Tenon space. Hogan MJ, Alvarado JA, Weddell JE.
