The biology of how blood vessels in the retina and choroid develop is helping scientists examine abnormal angiogenesis and how to identify potential therapeutic approaches to prevent or reverse it.
Zebrafish are naturally able to heal damaged retinas and prevent scarring that can lead to loss of vision. Cleveland Clinic researchers hope to learn how to replicate that process in the human eye.
Ongoing global analyses can identify biomarker candidates for targeted quantitative proteomic analyses. Knowledge gained can guide future diagnoses and treatments for AMD and glaucoma.
Learning how and why corneal scarring occurs is the key to preventing or reversing it. New discoveries from Dr. Steven E. Wilson’s laboratory might make both options feasible.
The latest in ophthalmic research, innovations, diagnostic advancements and clinical outcomes, brought to you by Cleveland Clinic’s Cole Eye Institute.
Discover how Cleveland Clinic physicians are hoping to improve survival in uveal melanoma by identifying patients with micrometastases—and suppressing them before they progress to macrometastases.
A new technique developed by Cole Eye Institute’s Elias Traboulsi, MD, has been shown to improve surgical outcomes for the roughly 5 percent of patients with thyroid eye disease who require strabismus surgery.
A $2 million grant will help Cole Eye Institute scientists produce a three-dimensional model of an individual patient’s corneal shape and material strength. The model would help identify early signs of keratoconus, and would serve as a ‘virtual eye’ to test treatments or screen refractive surgery candidates.
Good features can significantly smooth the bumpy road to the adoption of a medical records system. Customized functions can improve your work flow and practice efficiency and make the system work for you.
