English term or phrase: superior ora
Measurement of retinal layer thicknesses. Plastic-embedded vertical sections were taken through the eye cup extending from the superior ora ciliaris retinae (SOCR), through the optic nerve head (ONH) to the inferior ora ciliaris retinae (IOCR). The thickness of retinal layers was measured in regions 1 to 8 (A).

Termin "ora cilliaris retinae" jest utożsamiany dobrze znanym "ora serrata retinae". Ten pierwszy termin jest używany szczególnie w przypadku zwierząt. W związku z czym proponuję tłumaczenie "rąbek zębaty" (ora serrata).

Example sentence(s):
  • This name was given because the line appears jagged, or serrated, in humans. In domestic animals, however, the division is not serrated, and it is sometimes referred to as the "ora ciliaris retinae." Most often the term "ora serrata" is still used to desc

The ora serrata is the serrated junction between the retina and the ciliary body. This junction marks the transition from the simple, non-photosensitive area of the ciliary body to the complex, multi-layered, photosensitive region of the retina. The pigmented layer is continuous over choroid, ciliary body and iris while the nervous layer terminates just before the ciliary body. This point is the ora serrata. In this region the pigmented epithelium of the retina transitions into the outer pigmented epithelium of the ciliary body and the inner portion of the retina transitions into the non-pigmented epithelium of the cilia. In animals in which the region does not have a serrated appearance, it is called the ora ciliaris retinae.
