Ceramide (Cer) plays an essential role in photoreceptor cell death in the retina. On the one hand, Cer accumulation emerges as a common feature during retina neurodegeneration, leading to the death of photoreceptors. On the other hand, Cer deficiency has also recently been associated with retinal dysfunction and degeneration. Although more and more evidence supports the importance of maintaining Cer homeostasis in the retina, mechanistic explanations of the observed phenotypes, especially in the context of Cer deficiency, are still lacking. An enhanced understanding of Cer's role in the retina will help us explore the underlying molecular basis for clinical phenotypes of retinal dystrophies and provide us with potential therapeutic targets.
