Resembling the chorion, pertaining to the c. coat of the eye; the middle coat of the posterior portion of the eyeball; so called from its resemblance to the chorion in vascularity. It is a dark-brown, highly vascular tunic lying between the sclera externally and the retina internally, and extending from the opening for the entrance of the optic nerve forward to the ciliary body, into which it is insensibly merged. It is connected with the sclera by a loose connective tissue with large meshes more or less filled with pigment. [Gr.]
