It consists of an external, nonsensory single layer of cuboidal epithelium containing pigment (pigment epithelium) and an internal transparent and thicker neuroepithelium (sensory retina) containing several types of neurones and glial cells. Rods and cones are present in birds, serving similar functions as in mammals.

The sclera is reinforced by a continuous layer of hyaline cartilage which, in the zone nearest the cornea, is modified into a ring of 10–18 small, roughly quadrilateral, overlapping bones called the scleral ossicles. The ossicles strengthen the eyeball and provide attachments for the ciliary muscles. In large eyes the scleral ossicles can be pneumatic. In many species, including falcons, hummingbirds, woodpeckers and passerines, the scleral cartilage around the optic nerve is ossified, forming a U-shaped bone called the os nervi optici.
