Cytoplasmic constituents of neurons undergo constant directional flow. This phenomenon is noted universally in all neurons in the body and is called axoplasmic transport. This subject has been extensively discussed in the cell biology literature and, more recently, in the ophthalmic literature. On the basis of direction and rate of flow, axoplasmic transport is described to consist of at least three components: an orthograde rapid component, an orthograde slow component, and a retrograde component.
