The goal of this book is to provide an in-depth summary of our current knowledge and research directions in very specific topics, and the authors, who are recognized authorities in their fields, have accomplished this goal.

The book is divided into 11 chapters, four of which deal with clinically related topics, such as retinal aging, specific retinal antigens and their immunologic responses, the genetics and immunology of retinoblastoma, and the plasticity of the retinal vasculature.
