Fluorescein angiography during the choroidal phase of perfusion has been used to study the origin of blood vessels comprising neovascular tissue of the disc. These newly formed vessels were shown to derive their blood supply primarily from the uveal circulation rather than from the retinal circulation. This is related to the observation that many normal disc blood vessels originate from the choroidal or posterior ciliary circulation.
