By delivering gene therapies to patients before they go blind, doctors may be able to prevent the loss of many important light-detecting cells.
From millions of random mutations, scientists identify a virus that could make gene therapy for inherited retinal diseases safer and more effective.
The technique would retrain cells that typically don’t respond to light.
Delivering light-sensitive proteins to the retinas of blind mice restores some vision.
A stem-cell startup aims to test neural stem cells for treating two leading causes of blindness.
Photoreceptors created from induced pluripotent stem cells.
Treatment leads to an unexpected improvement in vision for one patient.
Gene therapy to make cells sensitive to light takes a step toward clinical use.
Researchers stimulate the growth of new retinal cells in mice.
A novel medical device could treat eye diseases like age-related macular degeneration.
