Goodbye to the weakness of sight .. Develop a medical adhesive to correct the vision of the elderly
A new study has developed a medical adhesive that corrects and improves vision in people with age-related vision loss.



A US study found that when adhesive is implanted in the posterior part of the eye in people with dry macular degeneration, they all have improved vision.



A 69-year-old woman was able to read 24 characters after installing the device, compared to just seven characters before that, according to research.



The adhesion involves a thin patch covered with intact embryonic retina cells on the tissue near the optic nerve, which sends impulses to the brain where the image is formed.



Dry macular degeneration affects 1.75 million people in the United States alone and reduces central vision by thinning the retina portion responsible for the direct vision of people.



Researchers at the University of Southern California have developed a 6 millimeter-thin adhesive in 4 millimeters placed on the retina in patients with advanced dry spots.



A year later, the patch was stabilized in patients in the eyes of the study participants who were treated with glaucoma, while those who did not received the patch continued to deteriorate.



Two of the study participants were better able to maintain their vision of objects a year after the adhesive was installed.



The researchers believe their findings suggest that the correction improves vision of people with age-related dry macular degeneration, at least in the short term, and plans to conduct a larger trial that tests the device for patients at an early stage of the disease.
