Twenty dogs had their intact omentum extensively lengthened by a series of surgical maneuvers. Transverse incisions were then made along the chest, shoulder, neck, and scalp which were undermined and connected to form a subcutaneous tunnel through which the omentum was brought up to the orbit. The lateral rectus muscle of the eye was divided and a scaleral flap developed along the lateral superior region of the eye which exposed the choroid upon which the omentum was secured. Subsequent studies demonstrated vascular connections between intraocular vessels and those of the omentum. Proof of the existence of these vascular connections was based upon fluorescent funduscopic, gross, and histologic evidence.
