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 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.
Researchers from Duke University and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory discovered that chandelier cells are selectively removed from the developing mouse visual cortex even before the animal’s eyes are open.
A new study shows that deleting one of the inhibitors of the RPE65 gene in a mouse model that carries a human disease mutation prevents degeneration of cone photoreceptors that are used for daytime high-resolution color vision.
A new study from University of Connecticut details a method of characterizing every cell in the cornea using an approach known as single-cell RNA sequence analysis to answer questions about the cornea’s healing process.
A new lens on visual neurons is laying the groundwork for a more complete “family tree” of the mammalian brain. Study reveals a new categorization of mouse neurons that relies on multiple types of data drawn from each individual cell.
