    The histological and histochemical studies were carried out on 60 camel embryos and foetuses eye balls of different Crown Vertebral Rump Length (CVRL). Paraffin sections were prepared and subjected to different stains. The present study revealed that, the optic pit was detected at 0.8 cm CVRL, as shallow groove on either side of the neural folds. The optic vesicle was observed at 1.5 cm CVRL, comprising from neuroectodermal cells, which became modified into a crescentic cup-like structure representing the optic cup at 2 cm CVRL. The optic cup was comprised from outer pigmented epithelium and the inner neuroblastic layer. The ganglion cells were distinctly differentiated at 6 cm CVRL, which separated from neuroblastic cells by the inner plexiform layer. The inner nuclear layer was firstly observed at 30 cm CVRL, which exhibited its full differentiation at 35 cm CVRL and became separate.. Read More»
