Use of ellipsoid zone width for predicting visual prognosis after cataract surgery in patients with retinitis pigmentosa
To predict the visual prognosis of cataract surgery in patients with retinitis pigmentosa by measuring ellipsoid zone (EZ) width using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography.
Can humidifiers reduce dry eye symptoms?
Dry eyes is a condition that occurs when a person’s eyes are not making enough moisture. Symptoms include sore, itchy, red eyes, and blurry vision. There are various causes and treatment options, including using a humidifier.
High-tech eye drop research targets corneal damage
A pre-clinical study, led by Associate Professor Rick Guei-Sheung Liu and Dr. Sloan Wang, published in the Theranostics journal, tests the use of nanomedicine to deliver drugs used to treat damaged corneas.
What to know about lupus and vision problems
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune condition in which the immune system becomes overactive and attacks healthy tissue. It most often affects the heart, joints, skin, lungs, blood vessels, kidneys, and central nervous system. Lupus can also result in damage to the eyes and the area around them, which may cause vision problems.
Promising new treatment for dry eye disease
The University of Manchester, Seoul National University College of Medicine and Link Biologics Limited today announced that promising preclinical data on the treatment of dry eye disease using a novel protein biological drug, Link_TSG6, have been published in the peer-reviewed journal Ocular Surface.
Macular degeneration can rob you of sight: Know the signs
Early diagnosis and care can often stop the progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which is the leading cause of vision loss in older Americans, the American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS) says.
Cataract surgery linked with lessened dementia risk: study
Cataracts affect most older adults at risk for dementia, and now researchers are finding strong evidence that cataract surgery is associated with a lower risk of developing dementia.
High-tech sleeping bag could solve vision issues in space
The specially designed sleeping bag may prevent vision problems astronauts endure in space, where fluids float into the head and continually push and reshape the back of the eyeball.
Warning signs of sight loss could be identified before vision deteriorates
A new study has shown that the signs of age related macular degeneration can set in earlier than previously thought—even before patients begin to lose their sight. The findings open the door for research into earlier treatment that could help slow down the onset of the condition—the most common cause of sight loss in the western world.
Eye model may improve corneal transplantation
We approached DTU Mechanical Engineering's product development department to inquire whether we could jointly develop a model of the anterior chamber of the eye that made it possible to conduct research into how a human cornea thrives best after a transplantation
