This paper discusses concisely the main issues and challenges posed by the validation of retinal image analysis algorithms. It is designed to set the discussion for the IEEE EBMC 2013 invited session 'From laboratory to clinic: the validation of retinal image processing tools '. The session carries forward an international initiative started at EMBC 2011, Boston, which resulted in the first large-consensus paper (14 international sites) on the validation of retinal image processing software, appearing in IOVS. This paper is meant as a focus for the session discussion, but the ubiquity and importance of validation makes its contents, arguably, of interest for the wider medical image processing community.
