A new University of Houston study, published in the journal Diabetes Epidemiology and Management, may explain significant racial and ethnic disparities that connect the numbers of those who undergo eye examinations and the prevalence of diabetic eye complications.
Multicenter cohort study shows reduced risk of vision-threatening diabetic retinopathy from fenofibrate
A team of researchers at the University of Pennsylvania has found that administration of a drug currently used to reduce cholesterol levels in the bloodstream can reduce the risk of developing proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) from non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR).
Research by international development organization Sightsavers, University of Ilorin, and the Kogi State Ministry of Health, in Nigeria has revealed links between vision impairment and poor mental health.
Sound can stimulate blind retina to transmit signals to the brain via an ultrasonic retinal prosthesis
Retinal degenerative diseases, caused by progressive degeneration of the light-sensitive photoreceptors in the retina, is one of the major causes of vision loss and blindness, affecting tens of millions of people worldwide. Although the rods and cones which are the light-sensitive cells of the retina have completely degenerated, the neural circuitries connected to the brain are mostly well preserved, providing the opportunity to restore vision by directly stimulating the retinal neurons.
A new study shows that children's digital screen time has increased significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in potential risks to physical health.
Researchers at the National Eye Institute (NEI) have discovered that power-producing organelles in the eye's photoreceptor cells, called mitochondria, function as microlenses that help channel light to these cells' outer segments where it's converted into nerve signals.
