The stated purpose of the editors of Progress in Retinal Research is "to communicate to as wide and diverse an audience as possible the central conceptual, idea-generating function of retinal mechanisms both to theoretical and applied biomedical research." The result of these efforts is 23 chapters in volumes 11 and 12 that cover a diverse range of key topics in retinal research. Each chapter is an in-depth review of the current status of a particular line of research. Although all the areas of investigation are important, some chapters are more successful in achieving the broad appeal of the mission statement to both vision scientists and clinician-researchers. For example, the clinician interested in a better understanding of underlying mechanisms will find fascinating chapters discussing retinopathy of prematurity, the genetics of retinitis pigmentosa, age-related changes in the retinal pigment epithelium, and mechanisms of retinal adhesion. The majority of chapters are more suitable
