Experimental Inner Retinal Ischaemia and the Blood-Retinal Barriers

The blood retinal barriers are remarkably rugged and resilient structures which are designed to protect the internal environment of the highly specialized and cellular retina. The barriers strictly regulate the movement of fluid, protein and metabolites into and out of the retina, thereby maintaining the critical architecture and orientation of the outer retinal receptors.
