Abstract A simple and inexpensive method to analyse retinal wholemounts is described. It allows the definition of regularly spaced sites to map regional specializations of the retina under light microscopy. After attaching a piece of translucent millimetre graph paper behind the slide holding the preparation, the two grid patterns of the graph paper and of the eye-piece grid are used in combination for the definition of sites for analysis and the return to specific areas as small as 50-100 μm2. The present method is simpler and offers several advantages when compared to others based on X-Y movements of the microscope stage or on photographic montage.
