5 Things We Learned This Month:

1. Lens Epithelial Cells Proliferate Like a Penny Pusher

New research shows that lens epithelial cells proliferate along a narrow line, pushing older cells toward the equator and then the center of the lens.

2. 3D Printing Could Improve Anatomy Studies for trainee Ophthalmologists

3D printed prosections of the eye, orbit and brain could help trainee ophthalmologists gain a better understanding of those parts of the human anatomy, and are especially handy when cadaveric remains are unavailable.

3. Don’t Dismiss Retinoscopy in Corneal Ectasia Diagnosis and Staging

Dedicated, high-tech approaches aren’t the only way to diagnose keratoconus – the humble retinoscope still has a part to play.

4. Since 2005, UK Organization Fight for Sight have Committed £25 million to Research

For the last 50 years, the UK-based charity Fight for Sight has been involved in funding breakthroughs in research and technology in ophthalmology – to the tune of £25 million over the last ten years.

5. Nanoparticles Could Reduce Corneal Graft Injection

Corneal graft rejection rates increase as adherence to postoperative treatment regimen drop. An injectable, sustained-release nanoparticle formulation of dexamethasone preparation may help – and so far has shown promise in mouse models.
