Menopause is the cessation of the menstrual cycle in a woman. Women experience symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, etc as their bodies adjust to lower levels of estrogen and progesterone. All women experience menopause differently. Some experience metabolic changes, weight loss or weight gain, and urinary tract infections among other changes. Others may not experience any changes at all.

Your eyes do not deceive you: Many women discover that they have blurry vision during pregnancy. No need to panic, though. Your vision will likely return to normal in the blink of an eye. Blurry vision during pregnancy is more common than you think, and sometimes sticks around until after you deliver.

We have all experienced headaches. Most adults get a headache every now and then, but how do you know if your headache is serious? The term "ocular migraine" can be confusing. It generally means a headache that's accompanied by changes in vision. The term is often used interchangeably to refer to two different conditions: migraine with aura.

Reduced blood flow and impaired neurovascular coupling are well-known features of glaucoma, the main cause of non-curable blindness, affecting 80 million people worldwide in 2020. The mechanisms behind these abnormalities are now known, thanks to new research by a team led by Adriana Di Polo, professor of neuroscience and ophthalmology at Université de Montréal. The findings by Luis Alarcon-Martinez and Yukihiro Shiga, both post-doctoral fellows in Di Polo’s laboratory and co-authors of the study, reveal that nanotubes connecting pericytes are damaged in glaucoma leading to neurovascular failures.

Heterochromia comes from the Greek word "heteros" which mean different and "chroma" which means color. It is a condition where a person has two distinct eye colors. One can have this condition from birth or develop it over time. The colored part of the eye (Iris) consists of one of the colors, such as brown, green, black and blue. But some people have unique colors in one eye, and some have different eye colors because of heterochromia.
