Figure 13

Schematic images depicting the choroid-RPE-retina interface in a normal retina and an AMD interface. The choriocapillaris-RPE interface in unaffected (top) and affected (bottom). The majority of early AMD-associated extracellular lesions - including drusen, basal laminar deposit (BLamD), and basal linear deposits (BLinD) - form along this interface.
