Altered effective connectivity of primary visual cortex in primary angle closure glaucoma using Granger causality analysis. Acta Radiol. 2019 Aug 07;:284185119867644 Authors: Jiang F, Fang JW, Ye YQ, Tian YJ, Zeng XJ, Zhong YL PMID: 31390872 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: The CDR and VCDR measurements provided by FD and SS OCT showed excellent agreement for the overall sample. When the devices were used for rim measurements, agreement was excellent only in the POAG patients. PMID: 31733916 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Children with nearsightedness (myopia) may now benefit from the first contact lens approved by FDA for slowing the progression of the common condition. Until now, traditional eyeglasses and contact lenses available in the United States have only been developed to correct blurred vision (a symptom of myopia),Â but not for slowing theÂ progression of the condition. Â âTodayâs approval is the first FDA-approved product to slow the progression of myopia in children, which ultimately could mean a reduced risk of developing other eye problems,â...

I read great interest the article by Hayashi and associates1 regarding the effect of 3 different topical antiglaucomatous agents on intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation after phacoemulsification in eyes with glaucoma. Similarly, in our recent prospective randomized study2 held on nonglaucomatous eyes, the authors suggested that brinzolamide is preferable for preventing an IOP spike after uneventful phacoemulsification. I have the following comments and concerns.
Publication date: Available online 15 November 2019Source: Chinese Chemical LettersAuthor(s): Ting Wang, Guanwen Qu, Yu Deng, Jing Shang, Zhangqi Feng, Fengyu Yang, Nongyue He, Jie ZhengAbstractThe prevalence of functionalized nanoparticles in biological and clinical fields attracts intensive toxicology investigations. Minimizing the nanoparticles’ biohazard remains a challenge due to the insufficient understanding on the nanoparticle-induced cell death mechanism. In the presented study, we observed the lysosome and genome injuries and so caused cell cycle changes and regulations of retinal ganglion neuron cell 5 (RG...
UAB has received a five-year, $3.5 million grant to study strategies to detect and manage glaucoma and other eye diseases in community-based settings. This grant will be focused on populations that are most at risk and the least likely to have access to eye care. The grant has been awarded to Lindsay Rhodes, assistant professor in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences. The research plan seeks to implement and evaluate a telemedicine-based strategy in patients that are primarily treated…
