Blood Vessel Growth Support and Prevention Package for Macular Degeneration Support

A major problem with advanced Macular Degeneration is the growth of blood vessels in the eye. These unwanted blood vessels develop in the late stages of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD), also known as “wet” ARMD. Dr. Marc Grossman at Natural Eye Care has developed a package of supplements aimed at strengthening the retina and reducing the risk of new blood vessel growth.

New blood vessels obscure vision. <.... Continue reading

Current Genetic Eye Disease Research on Fuch’s, Leber’s and Retinitis Pigmentosa

Current research on genetic eye diseases focuses mostly on genetic therapies. Scientists have learned how to sequence DNA at a relatively low cost. New tools for modifying genetic materials, such as the CRISPR, have opened the door for new treatments and even cures. Certain eye disorders are caused by mutated genes and genetic predispositions. This article highlights current research into four genetic eye disorders:

Fuchs’ Endothelial Co.... Continue reading

World KC Day

World KC Day is November 10th! World KC Day is an awareness day to help bring a spotlight to keratoconus and honor those that live and cope with keratoconus every day.Keratoconus, often abbreviated as “KC”, is a non-inflammatory eye condition in which the normally round dome-shaped cornea progressively thins causing a cone-like bulge to develop. This results in significant visual impairment. Do.... Continue reading

Smart Graphene Contact Lenses for Glaucoma and Diabetes Control

Diabetics and glaucoma patients could start wearing comfortable smart contact lenses to monitor blood sugar and intraocular pressure. Professor Jang-Ung Park and colleagues in South Korea1 have solved some of the problems associated with smart contact lenses by using graphene. They recently released a study documenting their breakthrough research. These biosensors may .... Continue reading
