Bruch's Membrane

retina-x-section

In the eye there are a number of layers. Photoreceptors toward the center of the eye, then the pigmented layer (RPE), and then the bruch's membrane which separates the RPE from the choroid which is the part of the eye with tiny blood vessels that distribute nutrients and oxegen to the retina.

The bruch's membrane acts as a filter between the RPE (retinal pigment epitheliam) and the choriocapillaries.
