Human and macaque retinae have similar retinal vascular anatomy. The general features of the retinal vascular anatomy of these two primates have much in common with more widely studied animal models such as rat and cat. However, primates are unique amongst mammals in having a region in temporal retina specialized for high visual acuity, which includes the fovea centralis (or 'fovea').
