System behind retina regeneration found

A team of researchers have discovered a dormant cellular mechanism that when manipulated could possibly activate the retina’s regenerative capabilities. Read more »

Research
Steriod implants successfully restore sight in cancer patient

Researchers have developed an innovative treatment for melanoma-associated retinopathy (MAR) that uses long-acting steroid implants injected into the eye. The procedure has been shown to successfully improve vision and reduce symptoms. Read more »

Research
New neovascular AMD biomarkers may assist diagnosis and treatment

Taiwanese researchers have discovered a novel method to predict neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) through optical coherence tomography (OCT) biomarkers, in a breakthrough that may lead to future treatments for the disease. Read more »

'Organ-on-a-chip' designed to speed up glaucoma research

Researchers have created a novel ‘organ-on-a-chip’ device that has potential applications in the field of glaucoma diagnosis. Read more »

Research
Tree shrew has potential to accelerate dry eye research

Scientists have discovered that the tree shrew – a mammal with a highly similar genetic make-up to humans – might have the potential to help unlock new understandings of dry eye disease (DED). Read more »

Research
Irish researchers shed new light on macular disease

Researchers from Queen’s University Belfast have discovered a key regulator in abnormal blood vessel growth, in findings that could spur the development of improved drugs for macular disease. Read more »

News
Research suggests tears could be used to detect glaucoma

A new research project examining the proteins that circulate in the eye’s fluids has the potential to pave the way for a test to diagnose glaucoma that doesn’t rely on intraocular pressure. Read more »
