In this issue of Immunity, O'Koren et al. (2019) report that murine retinal microglia are long lived and are divided into two spatially and functionally distinct niches in the retina. In models of retinal neurodegeneration, retinal microglia migrate to the subretinal space, an inducible disease-associated niche, where they are neuroprotective.
