Attention Network Plays Key Role in Restoring Vision After Brain Damage
Institute for Medical Psychology, Otto-v.-Guericke University Magdeburg

Magdeburg, Germany, September 4, 2018 - About one third of patients who have suffered a stroke end up with low vision, losing up to half of their visual field. This partial blindness was long considered irreversible, but recent studies have shown that vision training after optic nerve and brain damage can help restore or improve vision.

Current Stimulation of the Brain Restores Vision in Patients with Glaucoma and Optic Nerve Damage
Institute for Medical Psychology, Otto-v.-Guericke University Magdeburg

Vision loss due to glaucoma or optic nerve damage is generally considered irreversible. Now a new prospective, randomized, multi-center clinical trial demonstrates significant vision improvement in partially blind patients after 10 days of noninvasive, transorbital alternating current stimulation (ACS). In addition to activation of their residual vision, patients also experienced improvement in vision-related quality of life such as acuity, reading, mobility or orientation. The results are reported in PLOS ONE.

Wechselstrom-Stimulation Des Gehirns Verbessert Sehleistung Bei Patienten Mit Glaukom Und Sehnervschädigung
Institute for Medical Psychology, Otto-v.-Guericke University Magdeburg

Der Verlust der Sehkraft durch Glaukom oder Schädigung des Sehnervs gilt als irreversibel. Jetzt zeigt eine prospektive, randomisierte, multizentrische, klinische Studie signifikante Verbesserungen des Sehvermögens in teilweise erblindeten Patienten nach 10 Tagen Behandlung mit nicht-invasiver, transorbitaler Wechselstromstimulation (alternating current stimulation, ACS). Die Behandlung führte zu der Aktivierung von Restsehleistungen und sehbezogenen Verbesserungen der Lebensqualität wie Sehschärfe, Lesen, Mobilität und Orientierung. Diese aktuellen Ergebnisse wurden in PLOS ONE berichtet.
