There has been an explosive growth of research on the role of nitric oxide (NO) in physiological and pathological processes in many tissues and organs. The eye shares in this phenomenal growth. Rather than give an overview of the various systems in the eye where NO plays a role, I discuss herein some new concepts relating to NO function emerging from other studies that may have future relevance to the eye. The topics covered are listed in Table 1.
