Retinal implant designed to replace support cells damaged by dry age-related macular degeneration

Source: Science Daily

Researchers have published preliminary results of a first-in-human clinical trial for dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Four patients received implants consisting of human embryonic stem cell-derived retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), which support light-sensitive photoreceptor cells critical to vision.

Two substances typically associated with brain neurons are involved in the healing process of the cornea in humans. The discovery suggests that the substances, which are produced naturally in the cornea, could form the basis for a non-invasive treatment of corneal opacity. This according to a doctoral dissertation published at Umeå University.

New eye pressure test could prevent vision loss in older adults

Source: Science Daily

By age 75, approximately half of all Americans will develop cloudy vision caused by cataracts. The most common complication from cataract surgery is high eye pressure, which can cause swelling and other issues that can lead to vision loss or even blindness. Now, researchers recommend a new test to check eye pressure to prevent possible vision loss

Research shows new mechanism that can cause eye inflammation

Source: Medical xpress

Research presented at the ASM Microbe research meeting demonstrates a new way bacteria can cause dramatic morphological changes in human cells. Specifically, the researchers discovered that a common bacterial contaminant of contact lenses and cases can cause the formation of large bubble-like membrane structures on human ocular cells, which can contribute to contact lens wear complications and inflammation.
