Retinal pigment epithelial cells rpe constitute a simple layer of cuboidal cells that are strategically situated behind the photoreceptor pr cells the inconspicuousness of this monolayer contrasts sharply with its importance 1 the relationship between the rpe and pr cells is crucial to sight . The pigmented layer of retina or retinal pigment epithelium rpe is the pigmented cell layer just outside the neurosensory retina that nourishes retinal visual cells and is firmly attached to the underlying choroid and overlying retinal visual cells. This book provides a contemporary resource on one of the major players in retinal diseases the retinal pigment epithelium rpe throughout the book the physiological and the pathological function of the rpe are covered on equal terms to help readers to understand the rpe as a whole.

Research suggests that the retinal pigment epithelium rpe is where macular degeneration begins this pigmented layer of cells next to the retina serves as a pass through between the light sensitive photoreceptors of the retina and a layer of blood vessels called the choroid lying below
