    The delicate new vessels that grow on the surface of the retina resemble a tangle of hair or a fishnet. Neovascularization originating around the optic nerve head is referred to as new vessels at the disc (NVD), shown on the left. If originating elsewhere on the retina, the neovascularization is called new vessels elsewhere (NVE) shown on the right.
