1. A display comprising:
a substrate;
a plurality of planar emission structures supported by the substrate;
an encapsulation layer extending across the plurality of planar emission structures; and
an optical component layer supported by the substrate, the optical component layer extending across the plurality of planar emission structures, the optical component layer being positioned relative to the plurality of planar emission structures such that light emitted by the plurality of planar emission structures encounters the optical component layer;
wherein the encapsulation layer is positioned between the plurality of planar emission structures and the optical component layer;
wherein the optical component layer comprises a plurality of discontinuities, each discontinuity of the plurality of discontinuities laterally positioned between a respective pair of adjacent planar emission structures of the plurality of planar emission structures; and
wherein each discontinuity of the plurality of discontinuities does not laterally overlap a respective planar emission structure of the plurality of planar emission structures.
