  • Early eye disease test developed

    οφαλμιατρος-θεσσαλονικη

    A new, quick and simple eye test can predict who is more at risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of blindness worldwide. Researchers at Australia’s Vision Centre (VC) have found that while people with early AMD can still see in fine detail, other parts of their vision may be damaged and this […]

  • Automated Method to Detect Glaucoma in Its Early Stages

    A team of researchers led by Jun Cheng of the A*STAR Institute for Infocomm Research, Singapore, has developed a novel automated technology that screens for glaucoma more accurately and quickly than existing methods1. Glaucoma is a chronic, progressive eye disease that damages the optic nerve. It is the second leading cause of blindness worldwide, and […]

  • Human eye gives researchers visionary design for new lens technology

    οφθαλμίατρος-θεσσαλονίκη

    Drawing heavily upon nature for inspiration, a team of researchers has created a new artificial lens that is nearly identical to the natural lens of the human eye. This innovative lens, which is made up of thousands of nanoscale polymer layers, may one day provide a more natural performance in implantable lenses to replace damaged […]

  • The Camera Versus the Human Eye

    This article started after I followed an online discussion about whether a 35mm or a 50mm lens on a full frame camera gives the equivalent field of view to normal human vision. This particular discussion immediately delved into the optical physics of the eye as a camera and lens — an understandable comparison since the […]

  • New layer of the eye discovered

    οφθαλμίατρος-θεσσαλνίκη

    A new layer in the front layer of the human eye has been discovered by researchers at The University of Nottingham. The findings, published in the journalOphthalmology, could significantly help doctors carry out corneal grafts or transplants. The layer has been called the “Dua’s Layer”, named after the researcher who led the study, Professor Harminder […]

  • Basic Anatomy of the Eye

    οφθαλμιατρος-θεσσαλονικη

    Although small in size, the eye is a very complex organ. The eye is approximately 1 inch (2.54 cm) wide, 1 inch deep and 0.9 inches (2.3 cm) tall. The tough, outermost layer of the eye is called the sclera. It maintains the shape of the eye. The front sixth of this layer is clear and […]
