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.
Researchers from UCSB report the development of a new microscope they describe as “Dual Independent Enhanced Scan Engines for Large field-of-view Two-Photon imaging (Diesel2p),” which provides unprecedented brain-imaging ability.
New biomarkers found in the eyes could unlock the key to helping manage diabetic retinopathy, and perhaps even diabetes, according to new research conducted at the Indiana University School of Optometry.
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.
Tiarnan Keenan, NEI Division of Epidemiology and Clinical Applications, and colleagues found that people with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) can successfully use the Notal Home OCT device to monitor their disease.
A new combination of optical coherence tomography (OCT), adaptive optics and deep neural networks should enable better diagnosis and monitoring for neuron-damaging eye and brain diseases like glaucoma.
As regenerative therapies for blinding diseases move closer to clinical trials, the NEI's functional imaging consortium is pioneering noninvasive technologies to monitor the function of the retina’s neurons and their connections to the brain.
