This image depicted what is known as a fundoscopic view of the retina, or the back of the right eye. Note the optic cup on the right, at which point, the optic nerve and artery entered the back of the eye. In this case, the retinal circulatory tree exhibited a number of microaneurysms, which were minuscule outpouchings in the wall of the small arterioles supplying the retina with blood.
