    on September 23, 2022 at 1:09 pm

    People who wear reusable contact lenses are nearly four times as likely as those wearing daily disposables to develop a rare sight-threatening eye infection.

  • COVID-19 infections increase risk of long-term brain problems
    on September 22, 2022 at 4:44 pm

    A comprehensive analysis of federal data shows people who have had COVID-19 are at an elevated risk of developing neurological conditions within the first year after infection. Movement disorders, memory problems, strokes and seizures are among the complications.

  • New imaging technique could speed up development of eye disease treatments
    on September 22, 2022 at 2:27 pm

    Researchers have developed a simple and fast way to perform optoretinography, an imaging technique that measures light-induced functional activity in the eye’s retina, the network of neurons in the back of our eyes responsible for detecting light and initiating vision. More than 50 percent of people in the U.S. over age 60 are affected by diseases that impact the retina’s function in ways that reduce eyesight and can progress to blindness if not treated. The new approach could help accelerate the development of new treatments for eye diseases.

  • ‘Digital mask’ could protect patients’ privacy in medical records
