Shortly after joining the brand new University of Washington Department of Ophthalmology in 1966, I discovered the classic book on human retinal development by Ida Mann. When a friend in the UW Primate Center asked me if I wanted the eyes from 16 timed fetal and infant M. nemestrina, I had my first opportunity to discover for myself the very strange development of the fovea. This talk will review the evidence that I and my collaborators have amassed on foveal development, and will present an integrated model of primate foveal development based on these data.
