Make Sure Protective Eyewear is on Your Christmas Shopping List

American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO)

A new study in Ophthalmology Retina – a journal of the American Academy of Ophthalmology – shows that BB and pellet guns do blind children every year. And, the number of eye injuries related to such nonpowder guns are increasing at an alarming rate. Another study published earlier this year showed an increase of almost 170 percent over the last 23 years.

Researchers Design Technology That Sees Nerve Cells Fire

NIH, National Eye Institute (NEI)

Researchers at Stanford University, Palo Alto, California, have created a noninvasive technology that detects when nerve cells fire based on changes in shape. The method could be used to observe nerve activity in light-accessible parts of the body, such as the eye, which would allow physicians to quantitatively monitor visual function at the cellular level.

Questions & Answers: Normal-Tension Glaucoma

Glaucoma Research Foundation

What is Normal-tension glaucoma? Also called low-tension or normal-pressure glaucoma, normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) is a condition in which the optic nerve is damaged without eye pressure exceeding the average range (usually between 12-21mm Hg).

Wealthy patients flock to clinics that offer free healthcare to the poor

Cornell University

A new study by a Cornell University marketing expert upends that assumption. And it offers new insights into optimal resource allocation at health care nonprofits not only in low- and middle-income countries but also in higher-income countries.

NEI awards prize for progress toward developing lab-made retinas

NIH, National Eye Institute (NEI)

The National Eye Institute (NEI) awarded $25,000 to a team led by Wei Liu, Ph.D., Albert Einstein College of Medicine, for demonstrating progress toward the development of a living model of the human retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. The prize money was awarded for the first of two phases of the NEI 3-D Retina Organoid Challenge 2020 (3-D ROC 2020), a national initiative to generate human retina organoids from stem cells. NEI is part of the National Institutes of Health.

Single cell sequencing sheds light on why cancers form in specific cell types

University of Illinois at Chicago

While many cells in our bodies can accumulate oncogenic mutations, the majority of these events do not lead to tumor formation as these abnormal cells are eliminated by defense mechanisms. Instead, tumors arise when a mutation happens in a particular cell type that is uniquely sensitive to it. Identifying such cancer cells of origin is essential to properly target cancer.

How Changing Labs Revealed a Chemical Reaction Key to Cataract Formation

American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)

Researchers working to understand the biochemistry of cataract formation have made a surprising finding: A protein that was long believed to be inert actually has an important chemical function that protects the lens of the eye from cataract formation.
