Pars plana

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The pars plana is part of the uvea, choroidea, one of the three layers that comprise the eye. As a part of the ciliary body, it is about 4 mm long, located near the point where the iris and sclera touch and is scalloped in appearance. The pars plana may not have a function in the post-fetal period, making this a good site of entry for optical surgery.
