Retinal diseases have a devastating impact on millions of people worldwide. The range of disorders affecting the retina is large and includes age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and optic neuropathies. The costs associated with retinal disorders, both in terms of resources required for healthcare, and the toll that they exact on patients and their families, are steep, and there is an urgent need for new therapeutic approaches. The last few decades have brought a great deal of progress in terms of mechanisms and drugs, but translating these discoveries into therapies remains a critical challenge for the most of retinal diseases. This special issue explores the latest developments in the evolving field of retinal diseases trying to bridge the gap between basic research discoveries and clinical applications.
