Inherited retinal disorders (IRDs) are estimated to affect millions of individuals on a global scale, in many instances leading to significantly reduced vision or blindness. The term “IRD” acts as an umbrella label for many different types of ocular disease and, on a genetic level, it is estimated that almost 200 distinct genes are the […]

Retinal detachment increases in England in association with the incidence of diabetes

Clinical research from the Nuffield Department of Population Health, University of Oxford, has shown a considerable increase in the annual number of retinal detachments recorded in England over the past four decades. The Oxford-based study demonstrated that the annual rate of retinal detachment (RD) increased from 13.4 in 1999 (13.1 to 13.8) to 15.4 in […]

Photovoltaic restoration of sight with high visual acuity in animal models of retinal degeneration

Research, led by scientists at the Hansen Experimental Physics Laboratory, Stanford University, has demonstrated clinically relevant retinal responses from experimental animal models following implantation of photovoltaic arrays (doi:10.1038/nm.3851). The arrays were shown to illicit retinal responses with a spatial resolution of 64 ± 11 mm, a response estimated to be equivalent to approximately half of […]
