New UAB macular degeneration research looks at lesions behind the retina
by Bob Shepard
February 24, 2015
zhang 2Yuhua Zhang, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, has been awarded a $1,837,500 grant from the National Eye Institute to characterize extracellular lesions associated with age-related macular degeneration, a common, vision-stealing disease.

AMD affects more than 10 million Americans and can lead to severe vision impairment. To date, effective treatments are available for only the late stages of disease. Despite its prevalence, the factors that lead to development and progression of AMD are not completely clear.

Zhang aims to expand scientific understanding of the disease by characterizing subretinal drusenoid deposits, lesions recently recognized as conferring risk for progression to advanced AMD. Zhang will use an instrument he built to study retina changes related to these lesions at an unprecedented resolution. He seeks to develop imaging-based biomarkers and biometrics for assessing the progression of AMD. New knowledge about the role of SDD could help inform novel approaches to treatment.

Zhang, an optics engineer with expertise in adaptive optics imaging, has been mentored by two eminent scientists in the Department of Ophthalmology, Christine A. Curcio, Ph.D., and Cynthia Owsley, Ph.D. Curcio was the first to identify SDD in human donor tissue, and Zhang’s work builds upon Curcio’s findings.

“These lesions may impact vision by preventing the traffic of key nutrients to and wastes from the light-sensing photoreceptors and by directly exposing these cells to toxic compounds,” Curcio said. “They also may stimulate the ingrowth of abnormal blood vessels and indicate changes in the underlying blood supply to the photoreceptors.”

AMD affects more than 10 million Americans and can lead to severe vision impairment. To date, effective treatments are available for only the late stages of disease. Despite its prevalence, the factors that lead to development and progression of AMD are not completely clear.
A generous donation by Songs for Sight, an organization founded by Alie B. Gorrie to raise awareness and understanding for low vision, helped jump-start Zhang’s initial research after his recruitment to UAB in 2008. This $170,000 strategic investment paved the way for the new grant from the NEI for nearly $1.8 million.

“The department is dedicated to the establishment of a translational research team that will develop novel cures and biomarkers for macular degeneration,” said Chris Girkin, M.D., professor and chair of Ophthalmology. “The efforts of Drs. Zhang, Curcio and Owsley, along with others in our department, represent critical steps in these efforts to stamp out this blinding disease.”

What is Amblyopia?

The brain and the eyes work together to produce vision.
The eye focuses light on the retina.
Cells of the retina then trigger nerve signals that travel along the optic nerves to the brain.
Amblyopia is the medical term used when the vision of one eye is reduced because it fails to work properly with the brain.
The eye itself looks normal, but for various reasons the brain favors the other eye. This condition is also sometimes called lazy eye.

How common is Amblyopia?
Amblyopia is the most common cause of visual impairment among children, affecting approximately 2 to 3 out of every 100 children.
Unless it is successfully treated in early childhood, amblyopia usually persists into adulthood. It is also the most common cause of monocular (one eye) visual impairment among young and middle-aged adults.

Cardiff University's MSc in Clinical Optometry Scholarship
Dear colleagues,

I just wanted to make you aware that Cardiff University is offering scholarships for an MSc in Clinical Optometry for students from the Commonwealth.

Information on the scholarships is as follows:

Cardiff University's MSc in Clinical Optometry has 5 places funded by the Commonwealth Scholarship fund – please click here to check your eligibility and how to apply: http://cscuk.dfid.gov.uk/apply/
The deadline is the 17th May and you must also have applied to the University by this stage as well (using the link below).

Please apply online here: http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/regis/general/applyonline/optompgt.html

The course is studied by distance learning which means that you can study whilst you work. Please note that this is not a full time course, and does not require full time attendance at Cardiff University.

Our main entry requirement is a BSc in Optometry. However, to ensure that the course is suitable we ask candidates to send through their CV ([email protected]) so that we can ensure they have the right experience. Cardiff University has minimum English language requirements, details of which can be found on our website: http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/for/prospective/international/english-language-requirements.html

For detailed information on the modules please visit our website: www.cardiff.ac.uk/optom/pgt.

The full MSc costs £14,670, which the scholarship will cover. There will also be a £1,000 travel bursary.

Modules are delivered via lectures using Learning Central (the University's e-learning system). Most modules contain practical skills training directly relevant to everyday practice. This will take place in Cardiff. Each 10 credits at postgraduate level equates to typically 25-30 hours guided learning from your tutor. This is made up of lectures, discussions, practical workshops, tutorials etc. You are expected to spend approximately 3-4 hours on self-directed study and reading to accompany each hour of guided learning, as directed by your tutor.

Please apply online here: http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/regis/general/applyonline/optompgt.html

All the best

Sticky eyes: mistaking glue for eye drops a common error

It's a common - and dangerous - case of mistaken identity. More than 900 people from NSW have used superglue in their eye instead of eye drops, a review of calls to the NSW Poisons Information Centre between 2004 and 2011 has found.

ARTIFICIAL EYE/ RETINAL PROSTHESIS COULD HELP THE BLIND SEE AGAIN

Shawn Kelly, a senior systems scientist at Carnegie Mellon University, has developed a computer chip that translates camera images into electrical pulses that the nerves inside the brain can understand. The result is vision.

The cameras are incredibly small and mounted to a pair of glasses. The digital information picked up from t
he camera is sent along a wire to a thin film surgically implanted in the back of the patient's eye, between the sclera and the retina. The electrical signals stimulate the nerves in the retina, and that allows the patient to see. The system is powered via induction -- not much current is necessary since the electric field doesn't have to penetrate far into the head.

"FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION,
MY FOOT!!!"

I m surprised,
When u attack black people,
They call it "Racism"

When u attack Jewish people, They call it
"Anti-semetism"

When u attack women,
They call it
"Gender discrimination"

When u attack your country,
They call it,
"Terrorism"

When u attack Religious Sect.
They call it
"Hate Speech"

But when they attack at the dignity of our Holy Prophet MUHAMMAD (S.A.W.W)
They call it
"Freedom of Expression"

Whats this drama???
Bootha vekho inna daa!

Like & Shere if u can!
Raise ur voice
if it exists,
Atleast its the lowest level of JIHAAD.
Bhaar me jaey freedom of Expression.
We love our Nabi Hazrat MUHAMMAD S.A.W.W....
