This special issue is dedicated to the International Conference of Vision and Eye Research,which was successfully held during 26-27 May 2017 in Chiang Chen Studio Theatre PolyU. This special issue mainly aims to share and highlight the novel perspectives on regenerative medicine,ocular development,emerging technologies,OMICS in the field of vision and eye research, which is expected to benefit patients as well as the growth of young surgeons.
