Phil Zeitler, MD, PhD, has been treating kids with type 2 diabetes for more than 20 years. He and a team of researchers published a paper in the TODAY2 Study in the New England Journal of Medicine on the long-term complications of type 2 diabetes. (TODAY stands for Treatment Options for type 2 Diabetes in Adolescents and Youth). The first phase of the study took place from 2004 -- 2011; phase two from 2011 -- 2020. Both studies involved more than 550 participants from across the country.



My Optometrist recommended anti-fatigue lenses. Are they necessary? Anti-fatigue lenses are particularly helpful for close-up work. If you, like so many today, rely on your distance-only single-vision lenses, to see your screen clearly, anti-fatigue lenses may be the ideal solution for you.



Cataracts are the leading cause of visual impairment in the world today. Aging is the most common cause. A cataract is a progressive, painless clouding of the lens inside the eye. Cataracts block light, making it difficult to see clearly. Over an extended period of time, cataracts can cause blindness. They are often related to growing older, but sometimes they can develop in younger people.

A new study suggests current vaccines and monoclonal antibody therapies provide less neutralizing activity against the U.K. and South Africa variants of SARS-CoV-2. A new study of the U.K. and South Africa variants of SARS-CoV-2 predicts that current vaccines and certain monoclonal antibodies may be less effective at neutralizing these variants and that the new variants raise the specter that reinfections could be more likely.

New insight on how people with retinal degenerative disease can maintain their night vision for a relatively long period of time has been published today in the open-access eLife journal. The study suggests that second-order neurons in the retina, which relay visual signals to the retinal ganglion cells that project into the brain, maintain their activity in response to photoreceptor degeneration to resist visual decline -- a process known as homeostatic plasticity.

When the eye isn't getting enough oxygen in the face of common conditions like premature birth or diabetes, it sets in motion a state of frenzied energy production that can ultimately result in blindness, and now scientists have identified new points where they may be able to calm the frenzy and instead enable recovery. In this high-energy environ, both the endothelial cells that will form new blood vessels in the retina -- which could improve oxygen levels -- and nearby microglia -- a type of macrophage that typically keeps watch over the retina -- prefer glycolysis as a means to turn glucose into their fuel.

A new approach in ophthalmology that offers a revolutionary alternative to corneal transplantation has just been developed by researchers and clinicians in North America, Europe, and Oceania. The team was co-led by May Griffith, a researcher at Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital Research Centre, which is affiliated with Université de Montréal and is part of the CIUSSS de l'Est-de-l'Île-de-Montréal. The results of this multinational project have just been published in the journal Science Advances.
