Google research shows how AI can make ophthalmologists more effective

As artificial intelligence continues to evolve, diagnosing disease faster and potentially with greater accuracy than physicians, some have suggested that technology may soon replace tasks that physicians currently perform. But a new study from the Google AI research group shows

Eye surgery to remove the lens shows promise for treating early glaucoma

Lens extraction, a procedure usually used to remove cataracts, could be a better first choice for some people with one type of glaucoma than laser treatment.   Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions which damage the optic nerve and

Tuck into colourful fruits and vegetables and see the light

A $5.7 billion global medical bill to restore sight for the estimated 45 million people with cataracts could be slashed in half by a diet rich in colourful fruits and vegetables, according to an international study. Researchers from China and

Ophthalmic history made easy

By Hugh Williams FRCS FRCOphth, Honorary Consultant Surgeon, Moorfields Eye Hospital, London. Little did the New York dentist realise, when he cleaned his patient’s teeth with ultrasound, that it would change forever the world’s most commonly performed operation. The patient

SLT confirmed to be first-line therapy

  The recently published randomized multi center LiGHT trial concludes that SLT should be the preferred first-line treatment for patients with glaucoma or ocular hypertension. Published in The Lancet, the pivotal results of the LiGHT trial compared the use of SLT

Researchers home in on genes linked to age-related macular degeneration

National Eye Institute scientists led a collaborative study and zeroed in on genes associated with age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of vision loss and blindness among people age 65 and older. These findings provide a more expanded and

New target could help protect vision following optic nerve trauma

When a car crash or explosion results in an optic nerve injury, eliminating an enzyme known to promote inflammation appears to aid recovery, scientists report. They have shown for the first time in a mouse model of tough-to-treat optic nerve
