Medical Chameleons

Credit: Nima Ghadiri, Consultant medical ophthalmologist at the Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

“Chameleons are unique - able to perform large-amplitude, independent eye movements for scanning their environment, then switching to synchronous saccades when tracking prey. They are also well known for changing color to adapt to the environment, and in medicine we refer to ‘medical chameleons’ - complex, atypical and shape-shifting conditions where we need to adapt our diagnostic approach and treatment strategies.”
