New imaging technique to detect onset of vision loss

New imaging technique to detect onset of vision loss

Researchers have developed a new non-invasive retinal imaging technique that could prevent vision loss in diseases like glaucoma – the second leading cause of acquired blindness worldwide. The new technique called multi-offset detection, which images the human retina — a layer of cells at the back of the eye that are essential for vision — was able to distinguish individual retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), which bear most of the responsibility of relaying visual information to the brain. The death of these RGCs causes vision loss in glaucoma, the researchers said….

Alzheimer’s Proteins Behind Vision Loss in Elderly: Study

Alzheimer’s Proteins Behind Vision Loss in Elderly: Study

Researchers have found a group of proteins — known to be the likely cause ofAlzheimer’s disease — that get accumulated in the ageing retina causing damage to it and are also the key reason behind a vision loss condition among individuals aged 50 and older. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) — a leading cause of vision loss among people aged 50 and older — is a progressive disease that causes the death of the retinal photo receptors, the light-sensitive cells at the back of the eye. The most severe damage occurs…

Complete vision after pellet injury in eye unlikely: Doctor

Thirty-four-year-old Rauf (full name withheld on request) was crossing N M Road in downtown Srinagar to buy milk for his family on August 31 when a pellet shot to quell protestors nearby punctured his right eye. His week-long pain–“the feeling of pins and needles”, as he puts it–will hopefully end on Thursday when he undergoes pellet-removal surgery in Aditya Jyot Eye Hospital, Wadala. What troubles Rauf and his cousins Irshad and Zuhaib is the long list of pellet-injury patients waiting for treatment in Srinagar. “At Shri Maharaja Hari Singh Hospital…

Scientists restore vision in blind mice

Scientists restore vision in blind mice

In a major breakthrough, scientists have successfully restored vision in mice affected by glaucoma-like condition. The unprecedented, if partial, restoration could pave the way to future work that enables blind people to see, the study said. Cataracts can often be surgically removed, but there’s no cure for glaucoma, said the study’s senior author Andrew Huberman, Associate Professor of Neurobiology at Stanford University School of Medicine Glaucoma, caused by excessive pressure on the optic nerve, affects nearly 70 million people worldwide. Vision loss due to optic-nerve damage can also accrue from…

Optics leap forward for higher night time vision

Optics leap forward for higher night time vision

A team of Australian researchers has validated an optics leap forward which can revamp night time imaginative and prescient by means of making infra-red technology easy-to-use and cheap. The group pronounced a dramatic growth in the absorption performance of mild in a layer of semiconductor this is only some hundred atoms thick — to almost ninety nine percentage mild absorption from the modern inefficient 7.7 percent. this can store tens of millions of dollars in defence and different regions the usage of sensing gadgets, and improve applications of era to…
