Thanks to the work of NEI scientists and grantees, we’re constantly learning new information about the causes and treatment of vision disorders. Get the latest updates about their work — along with other news about NEI.
A National Eye Institute-funded project at Duke University has yielded a fully automated optical coherence tomography (OCT) device that does not require a trained operator and promises to broaden access to retinal imaging technology.
While it isn’t surprising that infants and children love to look at people’s movements and faces, recent research from Rochester Institute of Technology studies exactly where they look when they see someone using sign language.
The IQA is a software system intended for use in importing, displaying, analyzing and managing images acquired with digital fundus cameras. The patented software detects the most common causes of retinal imaging artifacts.
Researchers at Georgia Tech have developed a potential new treatment for the eye disease glaucoma that could replace daily eyedrops and surgery with a twice-a-year injection to control the buildup of pressure in the eye.
The brain’s visual centers must be adept at filtering out noise from retinal cells to get to the true signal, and those filters have to constantly adapt. Prosthetic retinas are going to need this same filtering to succeed, NEI-funded research shows.
