Internal Limiting Membrane Peeling in Macular Disorders

ABSTRACT The internal limiting membrane (ILM) is a thin, transparent, acellular membrane that forms the innermost boundary of the retina. ILM is the basal lamina of the inner retina, it is formed by the footplates of Müller cells and is composed of collagen fibers, glycosaminoglycans, laminin, and fibronectin. It has an important role in the early stages of retinal and optic nerve development, as a critical component of retinal...
