- adj. Of or pertaining to the vitreous humor.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
I have read some of the comments here & I have to say the liberal vitreal (sp?) is disgusting!
The possibility of forward movement of the anterior vitreal face exists and the incision must be as large as the lens.
I know the correct medical language-vitreal hemorrhage-but can only think: My eye is bleeding.
Starting at the vitreal surface, sequential sections were cut until the photoreceptor layer was reached then a 200 µm thick section, containing the ONL and IS, was collected.
