New Therapy Reverses Vision Loss by Calming down Hyperactive Eye Cells

Researchers from the University of California are taking a new treatment path development for dealing with eye diseases. This includes retinitis pigmentosa (RP), a blinding disease that is caused by photoreceptor degeneration. The researchers think that reducing noise generated by nerve cells in the eye can bring images more sharply into view. This will help people with retinitis pigmentosa and other kinds of retinal degeneration such as age-related macular degeneration. Case study The research was done in Richard Kramer’s lab, a Ph.D. professor in the department of molecular and cell biology and published in Neuron on March 12th, 2019. Kramer … Continue reading New Therapy Reverses Vision Loss by Calming down Hyperactive Eye Cells
