How valuable is it for vision science researchers to receive feedback directly from patients? As Luminita Paraoan, who we sat down with this month, puts it:

“It’s very important for researchers to see how the pathologies they work on affect people at different stages of vision decline. [Patients] have commented on how our findings have helped them in their daily routines. What is most important is that we all learn from each other.” To read a patient’s insight into a robotics project for precise retinal manipulations, check out our 2019 article, Robot Dreams. Do you think researchers should interact directly with patients? Let me know! Until next time, Aleksandra Jones, Editor.
