- About or external to the choroid coat of the eye: as, the perichoroidal space (the lymph-space between the choroid and sclerotic coats.)
Sorry, no etymologies found.
They pierce the sclera around the entrance of the optic nerve, run forward in the perichoroidal space, and supply the bloodvessels of the choroid.
The spaces between the lamellæ are lined by endothelium, and open freely into the perichoroidal lymph space, which, in its turn, communicates with the periscleral space by the perforations in the sclera through which the vessels and nerves are transmitted.
