Age-related macular degeneration and lupus share a common contributor to inflammation. The findings could help researchers develop new treatments for those conditions, and other conditions associated with inflammation.
A newly designed bionic eye is safe and stable for long-term implantation, researchers conclude following a three-month study in sheep. The discovery paves the way for human trials of the bionic device.
Fluoxetine, the antidepressant commonly known as Prozac, may be beneficial for the treatment of age-related macular degeneration. Researchers found Prozac significantly slowed the rate at which people over 50 developed AMD.
Researchers created a form of artificial vision for a blind woman with the aid of a brain implant position in the visual cortex. The results pave the way for the creation of visual brain prosthetics to help the blind to regain sight.
Contrary to popular belief, a child's visual perception does not reach adult level at age seven. A new study reveals children's visual perception continues to develop and does not reach maturity until age ten.
Findings upend the long-standing belief that blind people lack deep knowledge of visual phenomena.

Combining deep learning algorithms with robotic engineering, researchers have developed a new robot able to combine vision and touch.
Older adults with visual impairments are 1.3 times more likely to develop mild cognitive impairment, often considered a precursor to Alzheimer's disease, than those with no significant vision loss.
