The inability to see or the loss or absence of perception of visual stimuli. This condition may be the result of EYE DISEASES; OPTIC NERVE DISEASES; OPTIC CHIASM diseases; or BRAIN DISEASES affecting the VISUAL PATHWAYS or OCCIPITAL LOBE.
Failure or imperfection of vision at night or in dim light, with good vision only on bright days. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Total loss of vision in all or part of the visual field due to bilateral OCCIPITAL LOBE (i.e., VISUAL CORTEX) damage or dysfunction. Anton syndrome is characterized by the psychic denial of true, organic cortical blindness. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p460)
Vision considered to be inferior to normal vision as represented by accepted standards of acuity, field of vision, or motility. Low vision generally refers to visual disorders that are caused by diseases that cannot be corrected by refraction (e.g., MACULAR DEGENERATION; RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, etc.).
Filarial infection of the eyes transmitted from person to person by bites of Onchocerca volvulus-infected black flies. The microfilariae of Onchocerca are thus deposited beneath the skin. They migrate through various tissues including the eye. Those persons infected have impaired vision and up to 20% are blind. The incidence of eye lesions has been reported to be as high as 30% in Central America and parts of Africa.
Partial or complete opacity on or in the lens or capsule of one or both eyes, impairing vision or causing blindness. The many kinds of cataract are classified by their morphology (size, shape, location) or etiology (cause and time of occurrence). (Dorland, 27th ed)
Persons with loss of vision such that there is an impact on activities of daily living.
Dryness of the eye surfaces caused by deficiency of tears or conjunctival secretions. It may be associated with vitamin A deficiency, trauma, or any condition in which the eyelids do not close completely.

Transmission of gene defects or chromosomal aberrations/abnormalities which are expressed in extreme variation in the structure or function of the eye. These may be evident at birth, but may be manifested later with progression of the disorder.
Clarity or sharpness of OCULAR VISION or the ability of the eye to see fine details. Visual acuity depends on the functions of RETINA, neuronal transmission, and the interpretative ability of the brain. Normal visual acuity is expressed as 20/20 indicating that one can see at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. Visual acuity can also be influenced by brightness, color, and contrast.
Diseases affecting the eye.
Visual impairments limiting one or more of the basic functions of the eye: visual acuity, dark adaptation, color vision, or peripheral vision. These may result from EYE DISEASES; OPTIC NERVE DISEASES; VISUAL PATHWAY diseases; OCCIPITAL LOBE diseases; OCULAR MOTILITY DISORDERS; and other conditions (From Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p132).
An ocular disease, occurring in many forms, having as its primary characteristics an unstable or a sustained increase in the intraocular pressure which the eye cannot withstand without damage to its structure or impairment of its function. The consequences of the increased pressure may be manifested in a variety of symptoms, depending upon type and severity, such as excavation of the optic disk, hardness of the eyeball, corneal anesthesia, reduced visual acuity, seeing of colored halos around lights, disturbed dark adaptation, visual field defects, and headaches. (Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)

Defects of color vision are mainly hereditary traits but can be secondary to acquired or developmental abnormalities in the CONES (RETINA). Severity of hereditary defects of color vision depends on the degree of mutation of the ROD OPSINS genes (on X CHROMOSOME and CHROMOSOME 3) that code the photopigments for red, green and blue.
A species of parasitic nematodes widely distributed throughout central Africa and also found in northern South America, southern Mexico, and Guatemala. Its intermediate host and vector is the blackfly or buffalo gnat.

A rare degenerative inherited eye disease that appears at birth or in the first few months of life that results in a loss of vision. Not to be confused with LEBER HEREDITARY OPTIC NEUROPATHY, the disease is thought to be caused by abnormal development of PHOTORECEPTOR CELLS in the RETINA, or by the extremely premature degeneration of retinal cells.
A bilateral retinopathy occurring in premature infants treated with excessively high concentrations of oxygen, characterized by vascular dilatation, proliferation, and tortuosity, edema, and retinal detachment, with ultimate conversion of the retina into a fibrous mass that can be seen as a dense retrolental membrane.

Residual vision in the blind field of hemidecorticated humans predicted by a diffusion scatter model and selective spectral absorption of the human eye. (1/57)

The notion of blindsight was recently challenged by evidence that patients with occipital damage and contralateral field defects show residual islands of vision which may be associated with spared neural tissue. However, this possibility could not explain why patients who underwent the resection or disconnection of an entire cerebral hemisphere exhibit some forms of blindsight. We present here a model for the detection of intraocular scatter, which can account for human sensitivity values obtained in the blind field of hemidecorticated patients. The model demonstrates that, under controlled experimental conditions i.e. where the extraocular scatter is eliminated, Lambertian intraocular scatter alone can account for the visual sensitivities reported in these patients. The model also shows that it is possible to obtain a sensitivity in the blind field almost equivalent to that in the good field using the appropriate parameters. Finally, we show with in-vivo spectroreflectometry measurements made in the eyes of our hemidecorticated patients, that the relative drop in middle wavelength sensitivity generally obtained in the blind field of these patients can be explained by selective intraocular spectral absorption.  (+info)

Cortical blindness and seizures in a patient receiving FK506 after bone marrow transplantation. (2/57)

A 54-year-old woman with a myelodysplastic syndrome treated with high-dose chemotherapy and an allogenic bone marrow transplant developed acute cortical blindness while receiving tacrolimus (FK506). MRI showed white matter abnormalities. After discontinuation of FK506, the patient's vision returned within 8 days. FK506 neurotoxicity is similar to cyclosporine neurotoxicity and can occur in allogenic bone marrow transplant patients treated with FK506.  (+info)

Chronic cortical visual impairment in children: aetiology, prognosis, and associated neurological deficits. (3/57)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: To evaluate prevalence, aetiology, prognosis, and associated neurological and ophthalmological problems in children with cortical visual impairment (CVI). METHODS: The records of 7200 outpatients seen in the paediatric ophthalmology practice over the past 15 years were reviewed in order to compile data concerning CVI. In addition, the authors devised and applied a system for grading visual recovery in order to assess prognosis. RESULTS: CVI occurred in 2.4% of all patients examined. The four most common causes of CVI were perinatal hypoxia (22%), cerebral vascular accident (14%), meningitis (12%), and acquired hypoxia (10%). Most children with CVI had associated neurological abnormalities. The most common were seizures (53%), cerebral palsy (26%) hemiparesis (12%), and hypotonia (5%). Associated ophthalmological problems were esotropia (19%), exotropia (18%), optic nerve atrophy (16%), ocular motor apraxia (15%), nystagmus (11%), and retinal disease (3%). On average, CVI patients improved by two levels as measured by the authors' scale. CONCLUSION: The majority of children with CVI showed at least some recovery. In this group of children, CVI is often accompanied by additional ophthalmological problems and is nearly always associated with other, serious neurological abnormalities.  (+info)

Visual perception of motion, luminance and colour in a human hemianope. (4/57)

Human patients rendered cortically blind by lesions to V1 can nevertheless discriminate between visual stimuli presented to their blind fields. Experimental evidence suggests that two response modes are involved. Patients are either unaware or aware of the visual stimuli, which they are able to discriminate. However, under both conditions patients insist that they do not see. We investigate the fundamental difference between percepts derived for the normal and affected hemifield in a human hemianope with visual stimuli of which he was aware. The psychophysical experiments we employed required the patient, GY, to make comparisons between stimuli presented in his affected and normal hemifields. The subject discriminated between, and was allowed to match, the stimuli. Our study reveals that the stimulus parameters of colour and motion can be discriminated and matched between the normal and blind hemifields, whereas brightness cannot. We provide evidence for associations between the percepts of colour and motion, but a dissociation between the percepts of brightness, derived from the normal and hemianopic fields. Our results are consistent with the proposal that the perception of different stimulus attributes is expressed in activity of functionally segregated visual areas of the brain. We also believe our results explain the patient's insistence that he does not see stimuli, but can discriminate between them with awareness.  (+info)

The oculomotor distractor effect in normal and hemianopic vision. (5/57)

The present study investigated the inhibitory effect of visual distractors on the latency of saccades made by hemianopic and normal human subjects. The latency of saccades made by hemianopic subjects to stimuli in their intact visual field was not affected by visual distractors presented within their hemianopic field. In contrast, the latency of saccades made by normal subjects was increased significantly under distractor conditions. The latency increase was larger for temporal than nasal distractors. The results are inconsistent with previous proposals that the crossed retinotectal pathway from the nasal hemiretina to the superior colliculus may mediate a blindsight inhibitory effect when distractors appear within a hemianopic temporal visual field. Instead, the distractor effect appears to reflect the normal processes involved in saccade target selection which may be mediated by a circuit involving both cortical and subcortical structures.  (+info)

Intact verbal description of letters with diminished awareness of their forms. (6/57)

Visual processing and its conscious awareness can be dissociated. To examine the extent of dissociation between ability to read characters or words and to be consciously aware of their forms, reading ability and conscious awareness for characters were examined using a tachistoscope in an alexic patient. A right handed woman with 14 years of education presented with incomplete right hemianopia, alexia with kanji (ideogram) agraphia, anomia, and amnesia. Brain MRI disclosed cerebral infarction limited to the left lower bank of the calcarine fissure, lingual and parahippocampal gyri, and an old infarction in the right medial frontal lobe. Tachistoscopic examination disclosed that she could read characters aloud in the right lower hemifield when she was not clearly aware of their forms and only noted their presence vaguely. Although her performance in reading kanji was better in the left than the right field, she could read kana (phonogram) characters and Arabic numerals equally well in both fields. By contrast, she claimed that she saw only a flash of light in 61% of trials and noticed vague forms of stimuli in 36% of trials. She never recognised a form of a letter in the right lower field precisely. She performed judgment tasks better in the left than right lower hemifield where she had to judge whether two kana characters were the same or different. Although dissociation between performance of visual recognition tasks and conscious awareness of the visual experience was found in patients with blindsight or residual vision, reading (verbal identification) of characters without clear awareness of their forms has not been reported in clinical cases. Diminished awareness of forms in our patient may reflect incomplete input to the extrastriate cortex.  (+info)

Cortical blindness: an unusual sequela of snake bite. (8/57)

Several ophthalmic effects may follow snake bite; this report describes an instance of cortical blindness that resulted from snake bite.  (+info)

The prognosis of a patient with acquired cortical blindness depends largely on the original cause of the blindness. For instance, patients with bilateral occipital lesions have a much lower chance of recovering vision than patients who suffered a transient ischemic attack or women who experienced complications associated with eclampsia.[2][3] In patients with acquired cortical blindness, a permanent complete loss of vision is rare.[2] The development of cortical blindness into the milder cortical visual impairment is a more likely outcome.[2] Furthermore, some patients regain vision completely, as is the case with transient cortical blindness associated with eclampsia and the side effects of certain anti-epilepsy drugs. Recent research by Krystel R. Huxlin and others on the relearning of complex visual motion following V1 damage has offered potentially promising treatments for individuals with acquired cortical blindness.[10] These treatments focus on retraining and retuning certain intact ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cortical blindness and Anton syndrome in a patient with obstetric hemorrhage. AU - Argenta, Peter A. AU - Morgan, Mark A.. PY - 1998/5. Y1 - 1998/5. N2 - Background: Cortical blindness is characterized by loss of vision in the presence of intact anterior visual pathways. Anton syndrome, a form of anosognosia, is a rare complication of cortical blindness involving compromise of the visual association centers, with resulting patient denial of blindness. Both syndromes have been associated with computed tomography findings of localized cortical ischemia. In most cases, both the clinical and radiologic features are reversible. Case: A woman with hemorrhage from an incomplete abortion at 21 weeks experienced cortical blindness and visual anosognosia. Conclusion: Cortical blindness and anosognosia are unusual manifestations of severe hemorrhage but should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a patient with atypical visual symptoms.. AB - Background: Cortical blindness is ...
Cortical blindness refers to the loss of vision that occurs after destruction of the primary visual cortex. Although there is no sensory cortex and hence no conscious vision, some cortically blind patients show amygdala activation in response to facial or bodily expressions of emotion. Here we investigated whether direction of gaze could also be processed in the absence of any functional visual cortex. A well-known patient with bilateral destruction of his visual cortex and subsequent cortical blindness was investigated in an fMRI paradigm during which blocks of faces were presented either with their gaze directed toward or away from the viewer. Increased right amygdala activation was found in response to directed compared with averted gaze. Activity in this region was further found to be functionally connected to a larger network associated with face and gaze processing. The present study demonstrates that, in human subjects, the amygdala response to eye contact does not require an intact ...

Blindsight is the ability of some cortically blind patients to discriminate visual events presented within their field defect. We have examined a fundamental aspect of visual processing, namely the detection of spatial structures presented within the field defect of 10 cortically blind patients. The method outlined is based on the detection of high-contrast stimuli and is effective in flagging a window of detection in the spatial frequency spectrum, should it exist. Here we report on the presence of a narrowly tuned psychophysical spatial channel optimally responding to frequencies less than 4 cycles/° in eight out of 10 patients tested. The two patients who did not show any evidence of blindsight appear to have intact midbrain structures, but have lesions that extend from the occipital cortex to the thalamus. In addition, we have recorded subjective reports of awareness of the visual events in each trial. Detection scores of eight blindsight patients were subsequently subdivided based on the ...
Cortical visual impairment (CVI) is a form of visual impairment that is caused by a brain problem rather than an eye problem. (The latter is sometimes termed ocular visual impairment when discussed in contrast to cortical visual impairment.) Some people have both CVI and a form of ocular visual impairment. CVI is also sometimes known as cortical blindness, although most people with CVI are not totally blind. The term neurological visual impairment (NVI) covers both CVI and total cortical blindness. Delayed visual maturation, another form of NVI, is similar to CVI, except the childs visual difficulties resolve in a few months. Though the vision of a person with CVI may change, it rarely if ever becomes totally normal. The major causes of CVI are as follows: asphyxia, hypoxia (a lack of sufficient oxygen in the bodys blood cells), or ischemia (not enough blood supply to the brain), all of which may occur during the birth process; developmental brain defects; head injury; hydrocephalus (when ...

Patient G.Y. is able to discriminate emotional facial expressions presented in his blind (right) hemifield despite an extensive lesion of the corresponding (left) striate cortex. One proposal is that this residual ability (affective blindsight) depends on a subcortical visual pathway comprising the superior colliculus, posterior (extrageniculate) thalamus and amygdala. Here we report differential amygdala responses in G.Y. to presentation of fearful and fear-conditioned faces in his blind (right) hemifield. These amygdala responses exhibited condition-dependent covariation with neural activity in the posterior thalamus and superior colliculus. Our results provide further evidence that an extrageniculostriate (colliculo-thalamo-amygdala) neural pathway can process fear-related stimuli independently of both the striate cortex and normal phenomenal visual awareness.
Neurological Visual Impairment: this is also known as cortical visual impairment or cortical blindness. Causes include anything that affects the visual pathways in the brain such as sustained congenital brain infections, traumatic and anoxic brain injury. The eyes are normal but the visual processing areas of the brain that interprets incoming visual information, is abnormal. This is the cause for visual impairment in up to 21% of children. Vision is affected in different ways and different visual tasks are affected in each individual case. Some improvement can occur in the first few years of life, and vision often fluctuates. There is no specific treatment other than vision and other early intervention services to optimize the childs use of his residual vision. Some children develop vision problems after they are born. One of the most serious conditions - but fortunately rare - is called retinoblastoma ...
There has been debate in the literature about the exact role socioeconomic status has on vision impairment and one question (of many) that still remains to be answered as the literature seems to be undecided is around the issue of whether vision impairment is more prevalent in lower socioeconomic areas than more affluent areas and if so why?

A 14-month-old child ingested approximately 800 mg (70 mg/kg) of nifedipine. When first examined, the child was unresponsive, markedly hypotensive, and hyperglycemic. According to electrocardiographic results, there was a third-degree atrioventricular block that rapidly progressed to cardiac arrest. Following successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation, mechanical ventilation and resuscitation with intravenous normal saline, calcium chloride and dopamine were required to restore perfusion, reverse metabolic acidosis, and stabilize vital signs. Complications related to nifedipine intoxication included the development of pulmonary edema and possible infarction in the posterior parietal and occipital lobes associated with cortical blindness and the development of seizures with an abnormal electroencephalogram. The patient recovered without clinically apparent residua. Massive nifedipine overdose in infants represents a potentially life-threatening event that requires prompt medical attention. Reported ...

In a study performed in Malawi, Beare and colleagues demonstrate that retinal changes in malaria, especially macular whitening, do not appear to affect visual acuity after 1 month. This supports the hypothesis that retinal whitening is caused by reversible intracellular oedema in response to relative hypoxia. They conclude that permanent visual dysfunction after malaria is most probably a cortical phenomenon. See p 321. ...
A study carried out by The University of Western Australia has provided compelling evidence that congenital/early cortical blindness - that is when people are blind from birth or shortly after - is protective against schizophrenia.
Electroretinography is an important objective procedure that is used to assess the outer retina and follow the progression of and recovery from retinal disorders. This procedure is more sensitive than other diagnostic techniques, such as ophthalmoscopy, for determining subtle or early alterations in the outer retina. Electroretinography cannot, however, assess vision because an electroretinograpn (ERG) may be normal in dogs and cats with cortical blindness or early stages of glaucoma. If retinal dysfunction is known or suspected, an ERG may be necessary. This two-part presentation provides general practitioners with information about this relatively noninvasive electrodiagnostic procedure in order to assist them in assessing the need for referral to a veterinary ophthalmologist or neurologist. Part I reviews the morphologic and physiologic characteristics of the retina; Part II will examine electroretinographic technique, interpretations, and indications.

Leptomeningeal enhancement is usually infective or neoplastic in origin. We present a case in which a patient received total parenteral nutrition via a catheter unknowingly placed within the right vertebral artery. We postulate that the hyperosmolar nature of the infused solution induced temporary osmotic disruption of the blood-brain barrier, resulting in cortical blindness associated with localized leptomeningeal enhancement. ...
William and Ella entered the world on August 3, 2007 twenty minutes apart weighing 7lbs 2oz and 5lbs 2oz. They are blond haired beauties, William with enchanting ringlets and Ella with silky smooth straight locks. Ella loves water; William does not. William loves sweets, especially ice cream; Ella does not. Ella is an early riser and William loves to stay up late. They are different in many ways yet share an incredible twin bond. William has a rare brain malformation that has resulted in significant delays and health concerns including epilepsy and cortical blindness. These twins have made a tremendous impact on the lives around them; especially their mommys! I love them both so much and each day I share with them is precious ...

Up until VIPS came into our lives, most of the information we knew about Lolas vision impairment (cortical visual impairment) came from the internet. First Steps (the State funded early intervention program) had a wide variety of physical therapists, occupational therapists and many more with amazing expertise but the one type of specialist we needed the most was the one they couldnt provide. We needed someone that could teach us about Lolas vision. We needed someone to help us understand why Lola did certain things she did (like why she never used her hands or why she never looked at us), someone to explain how to teach Lola and, how to help her navigate through the world without relying solely on her sight.. We needed someone to help us be better parents for Lola.. Imagine that your child is born and you dont know how to care for them? There is no book on how to raise a child with special needs. I mean sure there are books, but none are specific to your kid. You need help. You need trained ...
To date no systematic method has been used for characterising the residual capacity of blindsight subjects that would allow comparison and generalisation across all subjects. The detection of isoluminant gratings of varying spatial and temporal frequencies commends itself for detailed between-subject comparison, and for mapping results onto physiological properties in relation to neuronal circuitry. We report the ability of a blindsight subject (CS) to detect suprathreshold sine-wave gratings over a range of spatial and temporal frequencies using psychophysical techniques. A band-pass spatial channel with an upper cutoff below 3.5 cycles/deg is specified. The data also have been analysed to compare differences between two types of blindsight performances, type I and type II. Spatial gratings were also used to elicit a pupillary grating response, offering an objective method that is free of verbal nuances and response bias, and the resulting band-pass channel can be used both for clinical screening and
Blindsight is an unusual condition where the sufferer can respond to visual stimuli, while lacking any conscious feeling of having seen the stimuli. It occurs after a particular form of brain injury.The first edition of Blindsight, by one of the pioneers in the field - Lawrence Weiskrantz, reported studies of a patient with this condition. It was an important, much cited publication.

PRES is extremely rare, and usually diagnosed by a history of sudden visual impairment in the presence of specific radiological changes on MRI. Bilateral symmetrical hypodensitities in the parieto-occipital areas and cerebellar hemispheres on imaging are characteristic. The condition has been associated with chemotherapy, hypertension, infection and autoimmune disease.1. It is thought to occur from temporary impairment of the blood brain barrier causing vasogenic edema with symptoms of reduced consciousness, seizures, headaches, and typically visual problems.2 Around 26-67% of patients with PRES present with visual symptoms of blurred vision, visual neglect, homonymous hemianopsia, hallucinations or cortical blindness.. Our case is unusual, as PRES caused by pancreatitis has only been reported in very sick patients with other comorbidities. It probably occurred in this case as a result of the systemic inflammatory response.3,4,5,6. Whilst pancreatitis itself can be life threatening, this case ...

By Kate Moss, Family Specialist, TSBVI, Texas Deafblind Outreach. I have recently received a number of requests for information about Lebers Congenital Amaurosis, a degenerative disease that results in a severe loss of vision. This disease is thought to be caused by abnormal development of photoreceptor cells in the retina or perhaps the extremely premature degeneration of the retinal cells. Typically a baby with LCA will have very reduced vision at birth although the retina may appear normal when first examined. Within months, however, parents will usually notice nystagmus - an involuntary, rhythmical, repeated movement of the eyes. Children with LCA account for 10-18% of all cases of congenital blindness. Vision in individuals with LCA varies greatly from relatively mild acuity problems (20/70) to no light perception. (Lebers Links, 2001). Occasionally LCA may be confused with other retinal problems such as retinitis pigmentosa, congenital and hereditary optic atrophy, cortical blindness, ...
Stress urinary incontinence: effect of pelvic muscle exercise. Use of magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of cortical blindness in pregnancy
Infants with early-onset MMA-HC present with gastrointestinal, hematologic, and neurologic problems; minor facial anomalies (such as long face, high forehead, large, flappy, and low-set ears, and a flat philtrum) often develop as the patients grow (8). Gastrointestinal involvement manifests with feeding difficulties, vomiting, atrophic stomatitis, glossitis, alternating diarrhea and constipation, and failure to thrive (7). Hematologic disorders include megaloblastic anemia, thrombocytopenia, and the hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a pathophysiologically unclear condition characterized by acute renal failure, microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, and thrombocytopenia (9). Neurologic manifestations of early-onset MMA-HC include hypotonia, seizures, psychomotor delay, lethargy, ataxia, brisk reflexes, and optic atrophy; moreover, HUS may produce neurologic complications, such as cerebral ischemic insults with hemiparesis, cortical blindness, seizures, and reduced level of consciousness, that are ...
Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) [MIM:300100]: A peroxisomal metabolic disorder characterized by progressive multifocal demyelination of the central nervous system and by peripheral adrenal insufficiency (Addison disease).

Serious Neurologic Adverse Reactions with Epidural Administration Serious neurologic events, some resulting in death, have been reported with epidural injection of corticosteroids. Specific events reported include, but are not limited to, spinal cord infarction, paraplegia, quadriplegia, cortical blindness, and stroke. These serious neurologic events have been reported with and without use of fluoroscopy. The safety and effectiveness of epidural administration of corticosteroids has not been established, and corticosteroids are not approved for this use. Because rare instances of anaphylactoid reactions have occurred in patients receiving parenteral corticosteroid therapy, appropriate precautionary measures should be taken prior to administration, especially when the patient has a history of allergy to any drug. Anaphylactoid and hypersensitivity reactions have been reported for dexamethasone sodium phosphate injection. (See ADVERSE REACTIONS).. Corticosteroids may exacerbate systemic fungal ...

An estimated 14 million of the worlds children are blind. A blind child is more likely to live in socioeconomic deprivation, to be more frequently hospitalised during childhood and to die in childhood than a child not living with blindness. This update of a previous review on childhood visual impairment focuses on emerging therapies for children with severe visual disability (severe visual impairment and blindness or SVI/BL).. For children in higher income countries, cerebral visual impairment and optic nerve anomalies remain the most common causes of SVI/BL, while retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and cataract are now the most common avoidable causes. The constellation of causes of childhood blindness in lower income settings is shifting from infective and nutritional corneal opacities and congenital anomalies to more resemble the patterns seen in higher income settings. Improvements in maternal and neonatal health and investment in and maintenance of national ophthalmic care infrastructure are ...
Around three years ago we began to lose faith in our local hospital eye clinic. We heard about a specialist with expert knowledge in vision in children with Down syndrome based at Cardiff University - Maggie Woodhouse (OBE) - and got Scarlett on her six month waiting list. Maggie has strong links with the Down syndrome Association and works tirelessly in research as well as proving support to other professionals and families.. We travelled to Cardiff, our whole family staying in a local Airbnb to have Scarlett assessed by Maggie. We were right to do so, we left with a new diagnosis of Cerebral Visual Impairment (CVI) and a new glasses prescription. Maggie also explained that even with glasses, Scarletts vision is like looking through a misty lens. Glasses would never fully correct her vision and so she should be treated as visually impaired with access to support such as pens instead of pencils to write with and large print to read. This was new information to us, none of Scarletts existing ...

U.S. researchers said on Wednesday that a year after receiving gene therapy for a condition that causes total blindness by age 30, three people continue to see better and one has improved enough to read the digital numbers on a clock, Reuters reported. Doctors involved in the experiment reported in the New England Journal of Medicine that improvements in the vision of the three volunteers, who were all in their 20s and legally blind, has not deteriorated over time.. One of the subjects has even developed a kind of second sight because her brain has learned to tap information from an area of the retina rejuvenated by gene therapy.. Dr. Artur Cideciyan of the University of Pennsylvania said the initial improvements were very substantial and occurred in a matter of weeks.. However, he noted that the one patients vision has continued to improve because her brain has apparently learned to use information from the treated portion of the eye, giving her the ability to read the clock.. Cideciyan ...

Peter Watts new book Blindsight is the best SF novel I have read in quite some time. Its a space opera, and a First Contact novel, and a vampire novel - and also a philosophical novel about the nature of consciousness. [The usual warning applies: this review unavoidably contains SPOILERS).. Watts is a hardcore sociobiologist, in outlook. Which is often something that drives me up a wall. But he has enough conceptual audacity that he makes it work, chillingly and powerfully, in Blindsight.. To explain about sociobiology: I despise it when those evolutionary psychology types tell us that women are hardwired to be attracted to older, wealthier men; or that criminality (a word or concept left carefully undefined) is significantly genetic, since children of criminal parents adopted into non-criminal families are (supposedly) much more likely to become criminals themselves than children of non-criminal parents adopted into criminal families. (Both these assertions come up, for ...
In Africa, loss of sight not only means a life of darkness. For many adults it means a loss of income and the ability to work, requiring dependence on family members and reducing a familys overall productivity. Currently more than three million African children under the age of five are blind and an estimated 43 million are threatened by vitamin A deficiency, a leading cause of blindness and vision problems. These children are more susceptible to life-threatening diseases.. The John Dau Foundation founded the Duk Lost Boys Clinic in 2007 to provide basic medical services to diagnose and treat common illnesses and specific medical disorders indigenous to this region. When we first started the clinic, the needs were massive and overwhelming; vision and nutrition were low on the list, said Dr. David Reed, the foundations medical director.. But as the years passed, the clinic staff continued to see throngs of blind patients being led on sticks by children or family members. We realized that ...
Two totally blind patients have received eye implants in an innovative and revolutionary trial at the Oxford Eye Hospital and Kings College Hospital, London. The electronic implants have resulted in both men becoming partial sighted with the ability to perceive lights and some shapes.
Oh, how I would like to do that! What an amazing physician I could be! What a powerful ministry my health center could have if I could always bear good news to the rural poor, unbind those in captivity literally or figuratively, end oppression in the hills of Appalachia, and give sight to my blind patients. I would be thrilled if I could always turn on a light for those who have chosen or been forced to sit down in a dark, cold place.. A young woman called me at the office recently, crying, repeating over and over, I just cant go on any longer. In answer to my questions, she revealed that she was sitting in a dark closet with a gun at her side. I struggled, painfully and urgently, to find a way to offer some light in her life as she literally sat in darkness, in the shadow of death. What could I say that might help her find a way out of her despair; that might give her reason to hope that peace, perhaps even joy, could return to her life? Instead, I kept her on the line while my nurse called ...
