pigment epithelium
Explanation:
EYE ANATOMY

When the retina pulls away from the pigment epithelium
at the interphotoreceptor matrix area, a detached retina results.

The retina is like the "film of a camera". It is separated from the very vascular choroid by the "retinal pigment epithelium". Sometimes breakdowns in this pigmented layer allow macular degeneration.
