This volume covers recent research on all aspects of degenerative retinal diseases including genetics, cell and molecular biology, and clinical and diagnostic studies, as well as research into retinal implants containing electronic chip technology being developed to restore vision in eyes that have lost photoreceptor cells. There is a strong emphasis on the molecular genetic approach to understanding these disorders. Several chapters present important new insights into the mechanism of photoreceptor degeneration and cell death. A number of the studies presented are targeted at retarding or reversing the degeneration process. A variety of diagnostic, clinical, histopathological, and physiological assessments of retinal degeneration in patients are also included. The scope, depth, and variety of approaches toward investigating these disorders, their prevention and progress toward sight restoration, make this volume the most up-to-date compendium covering this rapidly progressing field.

I have to say I love this idea, it solved a big problem.
