New Study Finds Federally-Funded Technology Saved Medicare $9 Billion

A new study quantifying a 21-fold return on investment suggests an efficient — and non-partisan — method to cut healthcare spending is to invest in basic research. The paper tracks how a new technology aids doctors in reducing the number of unnecessary drug injections used to treat a blinding condition called wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

“Green” Cataract Surgery Model Drastically Reduces Environmental Footprint

WasteUSandIndia.jpg

Faculty at NYU School of Medicine report that a healthcare center in India's model for cataract surgery emits 96 percent less carbon than in the United Kingdom -- and a likely even greater savings in the United States -- while yielding comparable or better health outcomes for one of the world’s most common surgical procedures.

Virtual Reality Users Must Learn to Use What They See

Anyone with normal vision knows that a ball that seems to quickly be growing larger is probably going to hit them on the nose. But strap them into a virtual reality headset, and they still may need to take a few lumps before they pay attention to the visual cues that work so well in the real world, according to a new study from University of Wisconsin–Madison psychologists.

Most Glaucoma Patients Don't Ask About Medication Costs

Less than one-third of patients with glaucoma talk to their doctor about the costs of medications needed to control their disease, reports a study in the December issue of Optometry and Vision Science, the official journal of the American Academy of Optometry. The journal is published by Wolters Kluwer.

The popularity of the Nerf “blaster” toy gun has created an active market for inexpensive off-brand versions of the Nerf darts, but new data from Virginia Tech suggests that the off-brand darts are two to three times more likely to cause eye injuries.
