The retinal capillaries at the disc margin, but they also have posterior anastomoses with the prelaminar capillaries of the optic nerve. The temporal nerve fiber layer may have an arterial contribution from the cilioretinal artery, when it is present. The prelaminar region is principally supplied by direct branches of the short posterior ciliary arteries and by branches of the circle of Zinn -Haller, when it is present. In eyes with a well-developed circle of Zinn-Haller, arterial branches emerge to supply both the prelaminar and the laminar regions.
