Research published in the American Journal of Ophthalmology examines the link between central choroidal thickness and age-related macular degeneration status. Researchers studied over 160 participants who were taking part in the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS). Choroidal thickness measurements were compared to participant’s eyes with no AMD, intermediate AMD and advanced AMD. Results showed that […]Leer Más "REPORT EXAMINES LINK BETWEEN CHOROIDAL THICKNESS AND ARMD"
Researchers have developed an antioxidant gene therapy that slows cone-cell death and prolongs vision in mouse models of retinal degeneration. Led by Harvard Medical School geneticist Connie Cepko and postdoctoral researcher Wenjun Xiong, the research team hopes the work will one day lead to new treatment options for people with inherited progressive blindness, such as […]Leer Más "SEEING THE LIGHT: GENE THERAPY SLOWS VISION LOSS IN MOUSE MODELS OF RETINAL DEGENERATION"
Macular degeneration is a medical condition predominantly found in elderly adults in which the center of the inner lining of the eye, known as the macula area of the retina suffers thinning, atrophy and in some cases, bleeding. This can result in loss of central vision, which entails inability to see fine details, to read, […]Leer Más "HAVE MORINGA, THE NATURAL CURE FOR MACULAR DEGENERATION (NOT STARGARDT PEOPLE!)"
