Pinakin Davey: Using Advancements in Technology to Diagnose and Treat Rare Conditions
Pinakin Davey: Using Advancements in Technology to Diagnose and Treat Rare Conditions VIDEO
Ophthalmology has made great strides in recent years treating many of the more commonly seen conditions, but work is being done to address some of the more rare problems, as well.
Pinakin Davey from the Western University of Health Sciences: Improving imaging in Ophthalmology VIDEO
Even a decade ago the technology used in diagnosis for ophthalmology was still developing. In that time work has been done to improve the ways doctors can see the potential problems their patients may have to provide a higher level of care.
Randy Kardon: Improving Technology to Help Diagnosis Process VIDEO
A condition like chronic traumatic encephalopathy is only able to be diagnosed now after a patient has already died. New technology is being developed to help patients while they are still alive. These new techniques could also be used to help other conditions as well.
Randy Kardon from the University of Iowa: Studying Vision Loss in Veterans to Learn More for Civilian Care VIDEO
For more than a decade medical researchers have been learning more about their fields from studying the injuries sustained by soldiers on the battlefield. A recent study looked at vision loss in this patient population, particularly in regards to traumatic brain injury.
Houmam Araj: National Eye Institute Looking Beyond Cataracts VIDEO
While cataracts may be one of the most common conditions being treated the National Eye Institute is also looking at ways to treat other less commonly seen issues as well.
Houmam Araj from the National Eye Institute: Treating Cataracts A Continuing Focus of Eye Care VIDEO
Cataracts are one of the most common diagnosis in eye care but there is still work being done to help treat the condition in the most effective way possible.
Yutao Liu from Georgia Regents University: Delaying the Progression of Glaucoma VIDEO
Yutao Liu, MD, PhD, Georgia Regents University, discussed how he and his team can potentially target genes to either reduce glaucoma or provide neuroprotection specifically for the mitochondria in the retina.
Potential New Treatment Approach for Age-related Macular Degeneration
A patch that uses patients’ own stem cells to protect them from vision loss will soon begin phase 1 trials.
Study Shows Long-Term Gains from Treat-and-Extend Therapy with Eylea in Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Results from the ATLAS study show that patients with wet AMD treated with Eylea experienced visual and anatomic improvements after 1 year that were sustained after 2 years.
