  1. Functional and Anatomical Remodeling in Human Retinal Detachment

    This manuscript by Clairton F de Souza, Michael Kalloniatis, Philip J Polkinghorne, Charles N J McGhee and Monica L Acosta examined retinal remodeling in response to a form of retinal detachment.  Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.  The authors describe the changes observed and note that retinal plasticity is acute and likely occurs quickly enough that it may explain persistent […]

  2. Complicated Retinal Detatchment

    This set of images (click the image above to enlarge) are optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of retained perfluoro-octane (PFO)  droplets after repair of a complicated retinal detachment.   PFO is a good surgical tool to help reattach the retina as they force sub retinal fluid out of any retinal tears and helps adhere the […]

  3. Grand Teton Imaging In Ophthalmology Workshop

    Imaging is such a crucial part of both clinical and basic research in ophthalmology and something that we have tried to show off here on Webvision in the Art of Vision category.  The Grand Teton Imaging in Ophthalmology Workshop is a meeting that is right in line with this imaging ethos and runs from September […]

  4. ARVO 2012 Snapshots

    Like we did last year, I’ve uploaded a bunch of snapshots from ARVO from around the meeting and from events in the evening including the Moran Eye Center social.  I’m out of town right now, so rather than resize all the photos and upload to Webvision, you can see all of them over on Jonesblog […]

  7. Age-Related Changes In The Daily Rhythm of Photoreceptor Functioning And Circuitry In A Melatonin-Proficient Mouse Strain

    This is an interesting study in PLoS One examining the involvement of melatonin in the retina, particularly in the survival of retinal neurons through aging studies in CH3-f+/+ mice, a melatonin proficient mouse strain.  As expected, certain physiological measures (a and b waves) are lost during aging, and in particular, the daily circadian rhythms of those measures. […]
