Repurposed Glaucoma Drug Halts Myopia Progression

A generic glaucoma drug has been shown to halt the progression of myopia (nearsightedness), potentially offering rapid approval for a new treatment of an incurable condition. The research is being presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) this week in Baltimore, Md.

Predatory Bacteria Kills Multi-Drug Resistant Bacteria on Eyes

Scientists have developed a new method to clear antibiotic resistant bacteria from the surface of the eye – introducing a new strain of bacteria that preys on other microorganisms. The research is being presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) this week in Baltimore, Md.

Taming the Trouble with Inhalers: A New Way to Treat Asthma

What does asthma have in common with anxiety? New research shows that both can be treated with chemical compounds that exploit the calming effect of certain neurotransmitters. It could lead to fewer kids having to use an inhaler to take steroids.
