Human retinas successfully grown in a dish

To help to understand how color vision develops researchers have successfully grown human retinas in a Petri dish. These bio-constructs will allow for different theories to be tested.

Early success for fractal-based retinal implants

A step-forward has been made with retinal implants, based on computer simulations of electrical charges. These are based on fractal geometry and the process has been developed at the University of Oregon.

Progress with topical treatment of retinal disease

SciFluor Life Sciences, LLC, an emerging clinical stage biopharmaceutical company, has announced it has secured a patent on a novel compound called SF0166. This is a small molecule integrin antagonist designed to treat retinal disease.

Breakthrough with artificial retinas for the visually impaired

Tel Aviv - Researchers have created a new light-sensitive film that could be the basis of a prosthetic retina. Such a retina could aid people suffering from retinal damage or degeneration.

Nanotechnology leads to improved retinal implants

Tel Aviv - Researchers have developed a new light-sensitive nanotube-based film. The technology could pave the way to more flexible and durable retinal implants.

Apple's 2014 MacBook Pro line gets specifications updates

Leaked images supposedly coming out of an Apple store in China shows updates for specifications and prices for the 13-inch and 15-inch models of Apple's MacBook Pro lineup.

Human stem cells used to create light-sensitive retina

Researchers have used a type of human stem cell to create a three-dimensional complement of human retinal tissue in the laboratory. The retina includes functioning photoreceptor cells capable of responding to light.

A cup of coffee protects against retinal damage

Ithaca - Food scientists suggest a daily cup of coffee can aid the prevention of deteriorating eyesight and possible blindness from retinal degeneration, due to glaucoma, aging and diabetes.

Op-Ed: Why Samsung can still succeed with plastic Galaxy S5 bodies

Rumors are floating around suggesting that Samsung is holding off on the release of the Galaxy S5 smartphone, which was scheduled for one year later after the Galaxy S4. Whatever the reason may be, they will not disappoint.

Scientists print retinal cells

Scientists have printed healthy rat retinal cells using a simple ink-jet printer. They hope this the the first step towards tissue printing.

Complicated electronics: The first retina wiring diagram produced

Researchers have created a neural wiring diagram of a chunk of mouse retina by analyzing thousands of electron microscopy images. This has produced the first map of an animal's retina.

Depression affects vision by reducing contrast

The world really does appear more dull when we are depressed, according to a recent study. Tests on retinas showed depressed people were unable to see contrast as well as those who were not depressed.
