Retinal diseases are leading causes of irreversible visual impairment and blindness, affecting over 100 million individuals worldwide. Age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma are the leading causes of blindness in the elderly, while diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of visual impairment in middle-aged individuals. The prevalence of all three of these retinal diseases will continue to increase as our world’s populations continue to age and diabetes becomes endemic.
