  • 3 An immersive 12.9-inch Liquid Retina XDR display for viewing and editing HDR photos and videos. (
  • The 12.9-inch Liquid Retina XDR display offers an even more expansive view and a stunning HDR experience. (
  • Like other parts of the eye, the retina can break down, and retinal diseases, including age-related macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, and diabetic retinopathy, continue to be leading causes of vision loss and blindness worldwide. (
  • Because the macular area of the retina is responsible for what is clinically referred to as "central vision," a macula that begins to deteriorate-a process known as macular degeneration-leaves behind only a peripheral view of the world. (
  • Macular degeneration may be under-recognized by the general public, but it is given both recognition and respect by the researchers and physicians at the USC-affiliated Doheny Eye Institute, which is consistently ranked among the top eye centers in the nation. (
  • Earlier this year, when the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation announced a six-year, $10 million grant to the Doheny to establish the Beckman Macular Research Center, it was the depth and breadth of the Doheny's research effort into macular degeneration that was most roundly lauded. (
  • Fortunately, only about 10 percent of patients suffering from macular degeneration have the "wet" type. (
  • Dry macular degeneration is a chronic eye disease that causes vision loss in the centre of your field of vision. (
  • Dry macular degeneration is marked by deterioration of the macular, which is in the center of the retina. (
  • Dry macular degeneration is one of two types of age-related macular degeneration. (
  • The other type - wet macular degeneration - is characterized by blood vessels that grow under the retina in the back of the eye, leaking blood and fluid. (
  • We have Stargardt's, a type of macular degeneration that means we lose vision in the center of the retina. (
  • The same types of exercise that lower your glaucoma risk can also reduce your risk of developing the wet form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). (
  • Retinopathy also happens due to blood vessel changes in the retina, although, unlike macular degeneration, the changes can affect the entire retina. (
  • But in the macula-which resides in an area of the retina that is just five millimeters in diameter-only a few retinal cells hook up to each nerve cell. (
  • AMD affects the macula, the area of the retina responsible for central and color vision. (
  • Since we knew that there were cellular changes in the retina that might reflect changes in the brain, we were interested to see whether imaging techniques that visualize those changes in the retina might be reflective of changes in cognitive functions,' said study author Ward Fickweiler, MD, a Joslin postdoctoral fellow, in a statement from the Joslin Diabetes Center . (
  • The retina, a layer of cells at the back of your eye, contains photoreceptor cells called rods and cones that transform light rays into electrical impulses. (
  • The rods and cones in your retina convert light energy into electrical signals, which exit the eye through the optic nerve, located just below the center of the retina. (
  • The retina has three layers: Light-gathering rods and cones are at the back of the retina. (
  • Initially, the researchers speculated that retina in such fishes would be loaded with more rods and cones than the day-active fishes, and thus require larger optic tecta to process it. (

  • Such images help to identify retinal cell types, their signaling molecules, and their patterns of connectivity. (
  • Harvard University researchers have discovered a new type of retinal cell that plays an exclusive and unusual role in mice: detecting upward motion. (
  • Once Schwartz and others get closer to wrapping up this list, the next step will be to work out the details of the internal wiring of the retina to understand better how it generates visual signals. (
  • Because of its position, it has long been thought to act as a processing centre for any visual information passing from the eye to the brain. (
  • Head Mounted Display is worn on the head of a visual output device, the computer generated image is projected on a near-eye display or directly on the retina. (
  • A contrasting account has suggested that the retina already extracts the specific information needed for certain visual behaviors and transmits a highly processed feature set upon which the brain can act more directly. (
  • This might explain why the retina's output includes more than 20 different types of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), many selective for specific visual features, for example, motion in a specific direction. (
  • In this view, the retina discards much of the raw visual information in favor of certain salient visual features that allow the creature to, for example, evade predators or capture prey. (
  • Refractive surgery and objective implants are also a treatment option for this type of visual problems. (
  • Cone cells detect fine details and color in the center of your visual field. (
  • The ganglion cells fire messages to visual centers in the brain. (
  • It results in a loss of vision in the center of the visual field because of the damage to the retina. (
  • The information captured by these cells is transported by nerves to the visual processing centers in the brain and pieced together into coherent images. (
  • Their visual centers may be important for adopting the correct camouflage, but they are also important for detecting predator movements in both bright and dim light", says Dr. Iglesias. (
  • In a study published in Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science, retinal blood flow and blood velocity were lower in chronic smokers who had type 2 diabetes. (

  • A wide range of pre-loaded features will help you to showcase your therapy center in the best light. (
  • New research from investigators at the Joslin Diabetes Center is shedding light on a new technique for assessing possible cognitive decline in patients with type 1 diabetes. (
  • Vision is an almost unutterably complex process that begins when light enters the eye and is absorbed by the cells of the retina. (
  • In this situation, the light is placed in front of the retina so distant objects blur. (
  • It can open and close to determine how much light to let in through the pupil, the black hole in the center of your eye. (
  • The retina consists of millions of photosensitive cells that react to certain types of light. (
  • When light enters the eye through the pupil, it passes through the lens, which changes shape to ensure that the light rays hit the retina. (
  • The retina, the light-sensing layer of cells at the back of your eye, sends images to your brain for processing. (
  • The 58-year-old man has a genetic disease called retinitis pigmentosa, which causes light-gathering cells in the retina to die. (
  • The level of light needed to turn the protein on could kill any remaining cells in the retina. (
  • The condition damages the tiny blood vessels in your retina, the layer of the light-sensing cells at the back of your eye. (

  • This lopsided arrangement literally directs the cell's function, orienting the dendrites downward like the roots of great trees," says Sanes, professor of molecular and cellular biology and Paul J. Finnegan Family Director of Harvard's Center for Brain Science. (
  • In fact, it's possible that some of the molecules we've identified are, in fact, the same molecules the brain uses to distinguish cell types. (
  • focused on a type of RGC called W3 that has high density and small receptive fields and thus would be a strong candidate for a generic pixel detector that transmits a high-resolution image to the brain. (
  • In the present work, Zhang and colleagues considered these two hypotheses for the retina of the mouse. (
  • Josh Centers ponders what Apple might unveil. (
  • The Apple iMac Pro boasts a new 27-inch 5K (5120x2880p) Retina display with 500 nits' brightness. (
  • There is an SDXC card slot, four USB 3.0 ports, four Thunderbolt 3 USB Type-C ports and one Ethernet port. (
  • It's the kind of information that holds the key for detecting retinal diseases earlier and more precisely, fixing miswired circuits that affect vision, and perhaps even one day creating an improved prosthetic retina. (
  • Leaky blood vessels obstruct your central vision if you have the wet type of AMD. (
  • There are various types of vision problems that may affect anyone. (
  • Presbyopia - this is the age of the various types of vision problems. (

  • On the retina display, you can almost make out the covers & type on some of the issues. (
  • However, in apps that haven't been upgraded to take advantage of the retina display there's a jarring juxtaposition between super-smooth text and pixelated images & icons, or simply places where the font weight has been reduced by virtue of the pixels getting smaller. (
  • The result is that the images are placed in the glass body instead of the retina. (
  • Use advanced pro cameras, the LiDAR Scanner, and the Ultra Wide front camera with Center Stage for amazing photos, AR, and more natural video calls. (
