The Microenvironment and Vision by Joel B. Sheffield

Well-known experts explore various aspects of the cellular environment of the retina, lens and cornea during normal and diseased states, including: - the extracellular matrix during corneal and vascular development; - the assessment of light damage from the environment and routine eye examinations; - the sources of oxidative damage and cellular protective measures; - the role of vitamin E therapy in retinopathy of prematurity. Professionals in ocular science, cell biology, developmental biology, neuroscience, and cell physiology will welcome the comprehensive discussion of the research frontiers. It will be of special interest to those concerned with the biochemical bases for degenerative eye diseases.
