The current review summarises recent attempts to elucidate molecular mechanisms of ocular diseases which include diabetic retinal disease, age-related macular degeneration and inherited blindness using proteomic methodologies. A theory can be created from worldwide protein articulation investigation of illness tissue, which would then be able to be tended to with cell and in vivo practical examinations.

In the past 20 years, causes of blindness have changed both in proportion and actual numbers but cataract has still remained the major cause of blindness globally and more so in Asia. Globally, major causes of cataract 17.6 million (45.8%), 8 million (18%) refractive errors, 4.5 million glaucoma (11%), 3.2 million age-related macular degeneration (8.1%), 1.9 million corneal scar (4.5%), 1.8 million diabetic retinopathy (4.8%), 1.3 million childhood (3%), 1.3 million trachoma (3.6%), 0.3 million onchocerciasis (0.7%) and 4.8 million due to other causes (12%).
