The episclera is the outermost layer of the sclera[1]. It is composed of loose, fibrous, elastic tissue and attaches to Tenon's capsule[1].

In episcleritis, the episclera and Tenon's capsule are infiltrated with inflammatory cells [2].

The episclera is a Vascular plexus that lies between the conjunctiva and the sclera and consists of two layers of vessels: the superficial episcleral vessels and the deep episcleral vessels.
