Glasses can drastically change a person’s appearance.
Researchers safely and effectively implanted a specially engineered patch of retinal pigment epithelium cells derived from stem cells to treat people with sudden severe AMD.
The procedure also involves a minimally invasive laser, and can be performed without medical supervision.

What is it like to see for the first time? Most of us can’t even imagine that, because it happened when we were babies and we can’t recall our first visual memories. But Kathy Bleitz, a Canadian woman, certainly will – for the first time, she was able to see using a new technology called eSight. The first thing she saw was her baby.
Meet Susan Barry. She’s an accomplished neurobiologist and a professor of biological studies at Mount Holyoke College. For 48 years of her life, however, Susan was visually stuck in 2-D world. You see, she was born with her eye crossed and could only see in two dimensions. Our eyes each produce an image, and since they’re very close to another and
Inaccuracy in the genetic makeup can lead to deficiencies that alter how color should be perceived in optimal conditions.
Eye contact plays a very important role in human interactions, however a recent research study made by psychologists at UC Santa Barbara found that looking below the eyes is the best place to get the feel of what a person is up to. Besides, apparently most of us are already hard-wired to fix our initial gaze to this point, albeit for an
Modern sight correction medical procedures often involve surgery where an artificial lens is implanted. The patient’s sight is significantly improved, however the quality of vision is far from that experienced with a healthy pair of eyes. That’s because current artificial lenses function more or less like those from a camera, a bit more advanced of course. The eye is a
A new Oxford University study shows how people living further away from the equator have bigger eyes and brains than those living closer to it. This is to cope with the harsh colder climate, scientists say. Anthropologists come to this conclusion after examining 55 skulls, dating from the 1800s, representing 12 different populations from around the globe. By measuring eye
The box jellyfish (commonly known as the sea wasp) is not only the most venomous creature in the world, but it also holds a few other major surprises. They may seem like rather simple creatures at a first glance, but researchers are now convinced they are nothing like this; as a matter of fact, they have no less than 24
With the growing number of people with eye problems it is harder and harder to find answers to problems raised; some cases are so bad that there is no other sollution and a cornea transplant is needed. Every year, in Germany alone, around 7000 people wait for a new cornea to save their eyesight. The bad thing is that
