Scientists have used stem cells to cure blindness in rabbits—which could be incredible news for visually impaired people.
Most types of bionic vision rely on using large parts of the existing human visual system to restore sight. But a new technique will simply feed the output from a digital camera directly into the brain.
Eat For Your Eyes
Don’t worry, I’m not going to tell you to add carrots to every meal. You can enjoy a range of foods that are good for your eyes if they’re rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, two antioxidants found in veggies like dark leafy greens (think spinach and kale), Brussels sprouts and corn. In one large-scale study, researchers discovered that women whose diets contained the highest amounts of these eye-healthy nutrients were 32 percent less likely to develop cataracts than those who ate the lowest.
