Following previous trials about hypo- and hyper-protein diets and their negative effects on some ocular structures when administered in selected stages of rats' growth, Authors have presented a comparative study of retinal alterations between light (LM) and electron (EM) microscopic analysis. LM showed a vacuolar degeneration of retinal optic fiber and ganglion cell layers where EM, performed at the same time, showed damages of the nervous tissue consisting of microtubule diminution, optic fiber molding and glial cell proliferation.
