Retinal diseases like diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration affect millions of individuals worldwide and often lead to vision loss. Vitreous fluid abuts the retina, is accessible for sampling, and contains many proteins related to retinal disease. Therefore, analysis of vitreous is an important tool for studying retinal disease. Because it is rich in proteins and extracellular vesicles, mass spectrometry-based proteomics is an excellent method for vitreous analysis. Here, we discuss important variables to consider when performing vitreous proteomics via mass spectrometry.
