- A review of our own data and published material on the screening pigments of the eyes of vertebrates and invertebrates and the human eye, i.e., melanosomes and ommochromes, is presented. The role of these pigments in the vision of vertebrates and invertebrates as antioxidant organelles is considered, as is the role of melanosomes in the physiology, aging, and pathology of the human eye.
