Latest Human eye Stories
LONDON, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:
A lens invented at The Ohio State University combines the focusing ability of a human eye with the wide-angle view of an insect eye to capture images with depth.
Max Planck Institute (MPG) scientists have found that rats move their eyes in opposite directions in both the horizontal and the vertical plane when running. This gives the rats a unique perspective on the world around them.
Cone receptors in the human eye lose their color sensitivity with age, but our subjective experience of color remains largely unchanged over the years.
A new technology might allow people who have almost completely lost the ability to move their arms or legs to write, by using their eyes.
From an anatomical point of view, a normal, non-pathological eye is known as an emmetropic eye, and has been studied very little until now in comparison with myopic and hypermetropic eyes. The results show that healthy emmetropic women have a wider pupil diameter than men.
Adaptive optics technology likely to spur sight-saving interventions, usher in new era of eye disease research, diagnosis and treatment.
In a major breakthrough in the field of regenerative medicine, scientists have for the first time created a part of the eye critical for vision using animal stem cells.
Seahorses are helping scientists gain new understanding about how detailed vision develops â€“ in research which may open a way to restore sight in people with age-related blinding diseases.

The Zonules of Zinn, also known as Zinn’s membrane and ciliary zonule, is a ring of fibrous strands connecting the ciliary body with the crystalline lens of the eye. The zonule of Zinn is split into two layers: a thin layer, which lines with the hyaloid fossa, and a thick layer, which is a collection of zonular fibers. Together, these fibers are known as the suspensory ligament of the lens. When color granules are displaced from the Zonules of Zinn, by friction against the lens, the...
