Study Sheds New Light on Low-Light Vision, Could Aid People with Retinal Deficits

Driving down a dimly lit road at midnight can tax even those with 20/20 vision, but according to a recent UC Irvine study, the brain processes the experience no differently than if it were noon. The same study also reveals how quickly the brain adapts to vision loss, contradicting earlier research and opening the door to novel treatments.

Plugging in Your Vision's Autostabilization Feature

antelope_PR.jpg

Just like cameras with an autostabilization feature, our eyes execute an imperceptible reflex that prevents our vision from blurring when we are in motion. But before the reflex can work, the axons of specialized nerve cells must find their way from the retina to the correct part of the brain. New research describes how those axons accomplish this feat.

Emerging Technique Gives Snapshot of an Individual Eye Cell’s Health

Researchers are studying ways to get a snapshot of all the genetic material that a single retina cell uses to make proteins, revealing the health of that eye cell. The research is being presented at the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) this week in Denver, Colo.
