Recent advances in molecular cell biology have led to the exploration of new therapies based on molecules, cells, and genes to treat a variety of ocular disorders. In this review, we present the current state of knowledge pertaining to the development of different delivery systems to mediate safe and long-lived therapies, with an emphasis on gene therapy. The advantages and limitations of these delivery and therapeutic methods are also discussed.
