Comment ellipsis of tunica rētīna 'net-like tunic', used to describe the blood vessel system at the back of the eye. The phrase is attested in the 12th century in Gerard of Cremona — the latter may have created this phrase as a translation for Arabic طَبَقَة شَبَكِيَّة‎ (ṭabaqa šabakiyya) 'net-like' layer", which translates Ancient Greek ἀμφιβληστροειδής χῐτών
