A study by light microscopy of the periphery of Descemet's membrane was carried out using unconventional methods for the preparation of the specimen. The results showed a fiber system contiguous to the anterior limitation of the trabecular meshwork or of Schwalbe's ring when present. It was concluded that there is a possibility of this fiber system being connected with a specific functional region.
