Characterization of an amphioxus paired box gene, AmphiPax2/5/8: developmental expression patterns in optic support cells, nephridium, thyroid-like structures and pharyngeal gill slits, but not in the midbrain-hindbrain boundary region. (1/4698)

On the basis of developmental gene expression, the vertebrate central nervous system comprises: a forebrain plus anterior midbrain, a midbrain-hindbrain boundary region (MHB) having organizer properties, and a rhombospinal domain. The vertebrate MHB is characterized by position, by organizer properties and by being the early site of action of Wnt1 and engrailed genes, and of genes of the Pax2/5/8 subfamily. Wada and others (Wada, H., Saiga, H., Satoh, N. and Holland, P. W. H. (1998) Development 125, 1113-1122) suggested that ascidian tunicates have a vertebrate-like MHB on the basis of ascidian Pax258 expression there. In another invertebrate chordate, amphioxus, comparable gene expression evidence for a vertebrate-like MHB is lacking. We, therefore, isolated and characterized AmphiPax2/5/8, the sole member of this subfamily in amphioxus. AmphiPax2/5/8 is initially expressed well back in the rhombospinal domain and not where a MHB would be expected. In contrast, most of the other expression domains of AmphiPax2/5/8 correspond to expression domains of vertebrate Pax2, Pax5 and Pax8 in structures that are probably homologous - support cells of the eye, nephridium, thyroid-like structures and pharyngeal gill slits; although AmphiPax2/5/8 is not transcribed in any structures that could be interpreted as homologues of vertebrate otic placodes or otic vesicles. In sum, the developmental expression of AmphiPax2/5/8 indicates that the amphioxus central nervous system lacks a MHB resembling the vertebrate isthmic region. Additional gene expression data for the developing ascidian and amphioxus nervous systems would help determine whether a MHB is a basal chordate character secondarily lost in amphioxus. The alternative is that the MHB is a vertebrate innovation.  (+info)

The role of RBF in the introduction of G1 regulation during Drosophila embryogenesis. (2/4698)

The first appearance of G1 during Drosophila embryogenesis, at cell cycle 17, is accompanied by the down-regulation of E2F-dependent transcription. Mutant alleles of rbf were generated and analyzed to determine the role of RBF in this process. Embryos lacking both maternal and zygotic RBF products show constitutive expression of PCNA and RNR2, two E2F-regulated genes, indicating that RBF is required for their transcriptional repression. Despite the ubiquitous expression of E2F target genes, most epidermal cells enter G1 normally. Rather than pausing in G1 until the appropriate time for cell cycle progression, many of these cells enter an ectopic S-phase. These results indicate that the repression of E2F target genes by RBF is necessary for the maintenance but not the initiation of a G1 phase. The phenotype of RBF-deficient embryos suggests that rbf has a function that is complementary to the roles of dacapo and fizzy-related in the introduction of G1 during Drosophila embryogenesis.  (+info)

Cell junctions in the developing compound eye of the desert locust Schistocerca gregaria. (3/4698)

Intercellular junctions in the developing retina of the locust Schistocerca gregaria have been examined by electron microscopy. Different types of junction appear in a well defined sequence during development. Five stages of ommatidial development are described. Close junctions and punctate junctions are present throughout development. Gap junctions appear transiently amongst the undifferentiated cells, before clearly defined preommatidia can be distinguished. The subsequent disappearance of gap junctions may be correlated with cell determination. Lanthanum studies confirm these findings. The later sequential appearance of adhesive junction types is described. These include septate desmosomes and two types of desmosomes. In the fully differentiated ommatidium only two types of junction remain, these are: desmosomes and rhabdomeric junctions.  (+info)

Neuronal differentiation and patterning in Xenopus: the role of cdk5 and a novel activator xp35.2. (4/4698)

Cdk5, a member of the cyclin-dependent kinase family, has been shown to play an important role in development of the central nervous system in mammals when partnered by its activator p35. Here we describe the cloning and characterization of a novel activator of cdk5 in Xenopus, Xp35.2. Xp35.2 is expressed during development initially in the earliest differentiating primary neurons in the neural plate and then later in differentiating neural tissue of the brain. This is in contrast to the previously described Xenopus cdk5 activator Xp35.1 which is expressed over the entire expanse of the neural plate in both proliferating and differentiating cells. Expression of both Xp35.1 and Xp35.2 and activation of cdk5 kinase occur when terminal neural differentiation is induced by neurogenin and neuro D overexpression but not when only early stages of neural differentiation are induced by noggin. Moreover, blocking cdk5 kinase activity specifically results in disruption and reduction of the embryonic eye where cdk5 and its Xp35 activators are expressed. Thus, cdk5/p35 complexes function in aspects of neural differentiation and patterning in the early embryo and particularly in formation of the eye.  (+info)

BMP7 acts in murine lens placode development. (5/4698)

Targeted inactivation of the Bmp7 gene in mouse leads to eye defects with late onset and variable penetrance (A. T. Dudley et al., 1995, Genes Dev. 9, 2795-2807; G. Luo et al., 1995, Genes Dev. 9, 2808-2820). Here we report that the expressivity of the Bmp7 mutant phenotype markedly increases in a C3H/He genetic background and that the phenotype implicates Bmp7 in the early stages of lens development. Immunolocalization experiments show that BMP7 protein is present in the head ectoderm at the time of lens placode induction. Using an in vitro culture system, we demonstrate that addition of BMP7 antagonists during the period of lens placode induction inhibits lens formation, indicating a role for BMP7 in lens placode development. Next, to integrate Bmp7 into a developmental pathway controlling formation of the lens placode, we examined the expression of several early lens placode-specific markers in Bmp7 mutant embryos. In these embryos, Pax6 head ectoderm expression is lost just prior to the time when the lens placode should appear, while in Pax6-deficient (Sey/Sey) embryos, Bmp7 expression is maintained. These results could suggest a simple linear pathway in placode induction in which Bmp7 functions upstream of Pax6 and regulates lens placode induction. At odds with this interpretation, however, is the finding that expression of secreted Frizzled Related Protein-2 (sFRP-2), a component of the Wnt signaling pathway which is expressed in prospective lens placode, is absent in Sey/Sey embryos but initially present in Bmp7 mutants. This suggests a different model in which Bmp7 function is required to maintain Pax6 expression after induction, during a preplacodal stage of lens development. We conclude that Bmp7 is a critical component of the genetic mechanism(s) controlling lens placode formation.  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of drosocrystallin, a lens crystallin gene of Drosophila melanogaster. (6/4698)

We have cloned the drosocrystallin gene (dcy) of Drosophila melanogaster, which encodes a major protein of the corneal lens, previously described in part by Komori et al. (1992, J. Cell Sci. 102, 191-201). Synthesis of the DCY protein starts weakly in 2-day-old pupae, reaches a peak at day 3 and day 4 of pupal development, and decreases very fast in young adults. The dcy mRNA is detected in the compound eyes as well as in the ocelli. The presence of a putative signal peptide and the extracellular location of DCY suggest that DCY is a secreted protein. Interestingly, the dcy gene shows sequence similarities to some insect cuticular proteins and is detected as well in two closely related Drosophila species, D. sechellia and D. simulans, and in one more distantly related species, D. virilis. This finding supports the hypothesis that Drosophila used the same strategy as vertebrates and mollusks, namely, recruiting a multifunctional protein for refraction in the lens, by a gene-sharing mechanism. Furthermore, it supports our intercalary evolution hypothesis, which suggests that the development of an elaborate structure (for example, a compound eye) from an original primitive form (an ancestral photoreceptor organ) can be achieved by recruiting novel genes into the original developmental pathway.  (+info)

Disrupted retinal development in the embryonic belly spot and tail mutant mouse. (7/4698)

The Belly spot and tail (Bst) semidominant mutation, mapped to mouse Chromosome 16, leads to developmental defects of the eye, skeleton, and coat pigmentation. In the eye, the mutant phenotype is characterized by the presence of retinal colobomas, a paucity of retinal ganglion cells, and axon misrouting. The severity of defects in the Bst/+ retina is variable among individuals and is often asymmetric. In order to determine the role of the Bst locus during retinal morphogenesis, we searched for the earliest observable defects in the developing eye. We examined the retinas of Bst/+ and +/+ littermates from embryonic day 9.5 (E9.5) through E13.5 and measured retinal size, cell density, cell death, mitotic index, and cell birth index. We have found that development of the Bst/+ retina is notably dilatory by as early as E10.5. The affected retinas are smaller than their wildtype counterparts, and optic fissure fusion is delayed. In the mutant, there is a marked lag in the exit of retinal cells from the mitotic cycle, even though there are no observable differences in the rate of cellular proliferation or cell death between the two groups. We hypothesize that Bst regulates retinal cell differentiation and that variability of structural defects in the mutant, such as those affecting optic fissure fusion, is a reflection of the extent of developmental delay brought about by the Bst mutation.  (+info)

Telomere loss in somatic cells of Drosophila causes cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. (8/4698)

Checkpoint mechanisms that respond to DNA damage in the mitotic cell cycle are necessary to maintain the fidelity of chromosome transmission. These mechanisms must be able to distinguish the normal telomeres of linear chromosomes from double-strand break damage. However, on several occasions, Drosophila chromosomes that lack their normal telomeric DNA have been recovered, raising the issue of whether Drosophila is able to distinguish telomeric termini from nontelomeric breaks. We used site-specific recombination on a dispensable chromosome to induce the formation of a dicentric chromosome and an acentric, telomere-bearing, chromosome fragment in somatic cells of Drosophila melanogaster. The acentric fragment is lost when cells divide and the dicentric breaks, transmitting a chromosome that has lost a telomere to each daughter cell. In the eye imaginal disc, cells with a newly broken chromosome initially experience mitotic arrest and then undergo apoptosis when cells are induced to divide as the eye differentiates. Therefore, Drosophila cells can detect and respond to a single broken chromosome. It follows that transmissible chromosomes lacking normal telomeric DNA nonetheless must possess functional telomeres. We conclude that Drosophila telomeres can be established and maintained by a mechanism that does not rely on the terminal DNA sequence.  (+info)

Myopia development is characterised by an increased axial eye length. Therefore, identifying factors that influence eye size may provide new insights into the aetiology of myopia. In humans, axial length is positively correlated to height and weight, and in mice, eye weight is positively correlated with body weight. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between eye size and body size in chickens from a genetic cross in which alleles with major effects on eye and body size were segregating. Chickens from a cross between a layer line (small body size and eye size) and a broiler line (large body and eye size) were interbred for 10 generations so that alleles for eye and body size would have the chance to segregate independently. At 3 weeks of age, 510 chicks were assessed using in vivo high resolution A-scan ultrasonography and keratometry. Equatorial eye diameter and eye weight were measured after enucleation. The variations in eye size parameters that could be explained by ...

The Drosophila gene eyeless (ey) encodes a transcription factor with both a paired domain and a homeodomain. It is homologous to the mouse Small eye (Pax-6) gene and to the Aniridia gene in humans. These genes share extensive sequence identity, the position of three intron splice sites is conserved, and these genes are expressed similarly in the developing nervous system and in the eye during morphogenesis. Loss-of-function mutations in both the insect and in the mammalian genes have been shown to lead to a reduction or absence of eye structures, which suggests that ey functions in eye morphogenesis. By targeted expression of the ey complementary DNA in various imaginal disc primordia of Drosophila, ectopic eye structures were induced on the wings, the legs, and on the antennae. The ectopic eyes appeared morphologically normal and consisted of groups of fully differentiated ommatidia with a complete set of photoreceptor cells. These results support the proposition that ey is the master control ...

Several eye-field transcription factors (EFTFs) are expressed in the anterior region of the vertebrate neural plate and are essential for eye formation. The Xenopus EFTFs ET, Rx1, Pax6, Six3, Lhx2, tll and Optx2 are expressed in a dynamic, overlapping pattern in the presumptive eye field. Expression of an EFTF cocktail with Otx2 is sufficient to induce ectopic eyes outside the nervous system at high frequency. Using both cocktail subsets and functional (inductive) analysis of individual EFTFs, we have revealed a genetic network regulating vertebrate eye field specification. Our results support a model of progressive tissue specification in which neural induction then Otx2-driven neural patterning primes the anterior neural plate for eye field formation. Next, the EFTFs form a self-regulating feedback network that specifies the vertebrate eye field. We find striking similarities and differences to the network of homologous Drosophila genes that specify the eye imaginal disc, a finding that is ...
Chimaeric mice were made by aggregating Pax6(−/−) and wild-type mouse embryos, in order to study the interaction between the optic vesicle and the prospective lens epithelium during early stages of eye development. Histological analysis of the distribution of homozygous mutant cells in the chimaeras showed that the cell-autonomous removal of Pax6(−/−) cells from the lens, shown previously at E12.5, is nearly complete by E9.5. Most mutant cells are eliminated from an area of facial epithelium wider than, but including, the developing lens placode. This result suggests a role for Pax6 in maintaining a region of the facial epithelium that has the tissue competence to undergo lens differentiation. Segregation of wild-type and Pax6(−/−) cells occurs in the optic vesicle at E9.5 and is most likely a result of different adhesive properties of wild-type and mutant cells. Also, proximo-distal specification of the optic vesicle (as assayed by the elimination of Pax6(−/−) cells distally), ...
Having regular, comprehensive dilated eye exams can help prevent vision loss. Early detection and timely treatment of eye diseases can help save your sight. In many cases, a comprehensive dilated eye exam is the only way to detect eye diseases that can cause blindness. When was your last eye exam? Why choose a dilated eye exam? When a pupil is not dilated, it is difficult for a doctor to examine the back of the eye. During a comprehensive dilated eye exam the entire retina of an eye can be examined, as well as the optic nerve and macula. A dilated eye exam may include the following tests: Pupil dilation: A pupil can be dilated by the use of specific eye drops. These will be administered by a specialized eye care professional and will widen the pupils after approximately 15-30 minutes. Your retina, optic nerve and macula can then be examined through a special magnifying lens. Your eye specialist will look for eye conditions like macular degeneration (usually age-related), diabetic retinopathy or damage

Dogs eyes even look remarkably similar to human eyes. Like us, dogs have a range of eye colors although their predominant color is brown. One important difference between us is that dogs have a third eyelid called a nictitating membrane. Although this membrane is not easily seen, certain diseases and eye irritation can make it stand out. The third eyelid sits in the inside corner of a dogs eye and helps to protect it from irritation by cleansing and lubricating the eye.. Most of the eye diseases and problems seen in dogs are the same as those found in humans. One of the most common problems seen in dogs is due to simple eye irritation. The same environmental irritants that afflict us afflict our dogs. Dust, smoke and chemical pollution are the commonest cause of watery irritable eyes in our favorite pets. Apart from seeing red, teary eyes which are often swollen, you will likely observe your dog rubbing or scratching at their eyes. Look carefully at whether both or only one eye is irritated. ...
What are thyroid gland disorders?. The thyroid gland, located in the neck, produces thyroid hormone which helps regulate our metabolism. It may produce either too much thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidisms) or too little (hypothyroidism). Imbalance in either direction can cause eye and vision problems.. Symptoms of hyperthyroidism include fatigue, fast heartbeat, weight loss, heat intolerance, fine hair, and diarrhea. Hypothyroidism may also cause fatigue but with slow heartbeat, constipation and weight gain.. What are the symptoms of thyroid related eye problems?. A staring appearance and dry eyes are often the firs symptoms. Early signs include swelling of the eyelids and tissues around the eyes. Swelling of the normal fatty tissue surrounding the eye can push the eye forward creating a prominence or protrusion of the eye. The degree of protrusion is variable and may involve one or both eyes. Swelling of the muscles which move the eyes may produce double vision. In severe cases the clear ...
An annual eye exam is much more than just getting new glasses. Among the many things that an annual eye exam can do is alert your eye doctor to the presence of an eye disease that may be developing unbeknownst to you. Sometimes eye diseases can change your vision so subtly that, day to day, you many not notice that your field of view is slowly decreasing or that you have a dark spot in the vision of one of your eyes. Early changes are harder to detect when the change only affects one eye as your brain may overlook the bad eye and use the view of the unaffected eye.. In cases where there is an eye disease present or developing, the following are the stages you will go through with your eye doctor.. ...

Pinkeye, also known as conjunctivitis, occurs when the conjunctiva, the thin membrane lining the eyelids and the whites of the eyes, becomes inflamed or swollen. The white part of the eye often also becomes red, thus the name, Pink Eye. Pinkeye is common among school-aged children because infectious pink-eye can be very contagious and spread quickly in classrooms, but it can occur at any age. The most common cause of pinkeye is a virus, although it can also be due to a bacterial infection or a non-infectious source such as allergies. One or both eyes may be affected. The symptoms and treatment for pink eye depend upon the type of pink eye you have.. Typically, bacterial pink eye, which can be treated by an antibiotic eye drops or ointment, is associated with burning, itchy eyes accompanied by a thick, yellow pus-like discharge that makes the eyes difficult to open upon awakening. This must be treated by antibiotic according to the eye doctors instructions for a minimum of 5 days, to prevent ...

Signal that switches on eye development - could lead to eye in a dish Wednesday, 24 October 2007 Researchers at the University of Warwick, funded by Wellcome Trust, have uncovered a crucial signal that switches on eye development. This discovery will greatly assist researchers looking at stem cells connected to eye development and opens up an avenue of research that could eventually lead to an eye in a dish. The University of Warwick research team led by Professor Nick Dale and Professor Elizabeth Jones from the University of Warwicks Biological Sciences Department have published their work today, 25th October 2007, in Nature in a paper entitled Purine-mediated signalling triggers eye development. The researchers were exploring whether release of ATP (an important signalling and energy carrying molecule) influenced the development of locomotion in frogs. Their experiment introduced molecules called ectoenzymes (normally found on the outside surface of cells) into frog embryos at one of the ...
No one likes having red eye. Its uncomfortable, frustrating, and it affects your appearance. It is fairly common, though, and its due to inflammation that causes the blood vessels on the surface of your eye to enlarge. Mild cases may just go away on their own, without any need for treatment. But when its moderate to severe, stubborn red eye, you will want to schedule an exam with our eye doctor in Summerlin.. Red eye is a general term that can have various root causes, such as pink eye (conjunctivitis), dry eyes, a foreign object stuck in your eye, corneal ulcers, or even a herpes infection of the cornea. The terms pink eye and red eye are sometimes used interchangeably, but that isnt always the case, even though the symptoms are similar and both are caused by inflammation. Our eye doctor in Summerlin will be able to diagnose the precise reason for your red eye and offer you the appropriate treatment options.. Other than the obvious symptom of reddish eyes, there are other signs that you ...
The chick embryo has prevailed as one of the major models to study developmental biology, cell biology and regeneration. From all the anatomical features of the chick embryo, the eye is one of the most studied. In the chick embryo, the eye develops between 26 and 33 h after incubation (Stages 8-9, Hamburger and Hamilton, 1951). It originates from the posterior region of the forebrain, called the diencephalon. However, the vertebrate eye includes tissues from different origins including surface ectoderm (lens and cornea), anterior neural plate (retina, iris, ciliary body and retinal pigmented epithelium) and neural crest/head mesoderm (stroma of the iris and of the ciliary body as well as choroid, sclera and part of the cornea). After gastrulation, a single eye field originates from the anterior neural plate and is characterized by the expression of eye field transcriptional factors (EFTFs) that orchestrate the program for eye development. Later in development, the eye field separates in two and the

Women have a higher risk for some eye diseases. To keep eyes healthy, women should take note of the following conditions.. Eye Trauma. Even something as ordinary as using cosmetics can cause eye irritation. Most women can relate to jabbing themselves in the eye with a mascara wand or other cosmetics tool. Besides being extremely irritating or painful, your eyes are very delicate and these accidents, while not usually serious, can cause lasting irritation and/or damage.. If discomfort from such an accident persists, see your eye doctor.. Glaucoma. Women are more likely than men to develop this eye disease as they age. Glaucoma causes gradual, ongoing damage to the optic nerve. Women are also the gender more likely to become visually impaired or blinded by the disease, so it is important to have your eyes checked regularly.. Glaucoma can be treated with daily eye drops and/or laser surgery.. Cataracts. Cataracts, a clouding of lenses in the eyes, are also a bit more common in women than in men as ...
The Drosophila compound eye forms a stereotypical lattice of ~800 ommatidia (Fig. 1A). Overexpression of Drosophila pink1 causes a disorganization of the ommatidial array and roughening of the external eye morphology (Fig. 1B). The physiological relevance of this phenotype to the normal function of the Pink1/Parkin pathway can be inferred since the rough eye, resulting from pink1 overexpression, is significantly suppressed by removal of Parkin, which acts downstream of Pink1 (Fig. 1C,K). Furthermore, overexpression of both pink1 and parkin results in a severe rough eye phenotype, which greatly exceeds that conferred by pink1 or parkin overexpression alone (Fig. 1D and supplementary material Fig. S1B). These data are consistent with the finding that the pink1 overexpression phenotype is derived from amplified signaling through the normal physiological targets of Pink1, which commends this system as a useful tool to test whether certain genes interact with pink1.. The PD-linked mitochondrial ...

I am 32 years old and had PRK done on both eyes in mid-Dec 2009. My prescription was -3.50 for my right eye, and -3.75 with a little astigmatism for my left eye. I think the intended lasering time was 15 sec for my right eye and 22 sec for my left eye. Everything went well for my right eye (done first) but the procedure didnt go as smoothly for my left eye. After the doctor had scrubbed my left eye, when he was scraping it clean, I felt something and only said uh. Then the doctor moved to a different part of my eye, and I felt nothing, so I thought it wasnt so bad. The doctor was telling me a story about China at the time and I dont think he noticed... Anyway, I realize now it was a horribly stupid thing not to say anything, because when the laser came on I couldnt keep my left eye still! I dont remember any pain per-se but my eye must have felt something because I could barely control it! It kept moving to the side and the doctor kept saying look at the laser, look at the laser. I ...
I had Custom Vue Wavefront LAISK on 2 weeks ago tomorrw. My contact rx was -5.75 right eye and -5.25 left eye with 7mm pupils. I am experiencing halos, starbursts, glare, some blur off and on, and eye dryness. I have seen the doctor two times since the surgery. I was told that the dryness is getting better which I can tell. But the problem I am experiencing now is that my right eye feels like there is something in it!! The best way to describe it is the top of my eye feels like there is an eyelash under the lid when I blink. Yesterday I noticed that it feels like there is something in the corner of my eye that goes in towark the color of my eye. The feeling when I blink is driving me CRAZY! Strange thing is that from day one the right eye has not felt as well as the left one. I remember that when I would put eye drops in my right eye from day one and I would blink that something was sticking almost like the feeling of having water in your eye with a contact in it. The doctor says the flap is ...
Definition of Canine Cherry Eye. Cherry Eye in Dogs, more technically referred to as the prolapse or eversion of the gland of the nictitating membrane, is a condition where part of a dogs eye flips over and bulges out from the lower inside corner. As a result, the dog will develop an alarming red mass protruding from its eye. The mass will remain in place until the condition is corrected, and will appear as if the dog has a cherry sticking out of its eye (which is why most people refer to the condition as Cherry Eye). What causes cherry eye isnt well-understood, but generally speaking, something weakens the connective tissues that normally keep the third eyelid close to the eyeball. Genetics probably play a large role. While cherry eye can affect one or both eyes, it doesnt happen in both at the same time. Affected dogs are uncomfortable from eye dryness, swelling, irritation, inflammation and pain. They paw at their eyes and rub their faces on flooring or furniture to try and relieve ...

Foxcin Eye Drops is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic used to treat eye infections. It is used to treat infection of the cornea (a transparent layer that covers the front part of the eye) and conjunctivitis or pink eye caused by bacteria. Pink eye can easily spread by direct or indirect contact with an infected person. This eye drop is effective against a large number of bacteria. It kills or prevents the growth of bacteria causing the infection. It is not effective against eye infections caused by viruses. Once an antibiotic is started, it is always recommended to finish the entire course of treatment. For the ease of remembering, use Foxcin Eye Drops around the same time every day. You should wash your hands properly before administering Foxcin Eye Drops. Tilt your head back slightly and pull down your lower eyelid to create a small pocket. Hold the dropper close to the eye with the tip facing downwards. Squeeze the dropper so that a drop of medicine falls in the pocket. Close your eyes for 2 to 3

Dry eye is a condition in which there are insufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision. People with dry eyes either do not produce enough tears or have a poor quality of tears. Dry eye is a common and often chronic problem, particularly in older adults.. With each blink of the eyelids, tears are spread across the front surface of the eye, known as the cornea. Tears provide lubrication, reduce the risk of eye infection, wash away foreign matter in the eye, and keep the surface of the eyes smooth and clear. Excess tears in the eyes flow into small drainage ducts, in the inner corners of the eyelids, which drain in the back of the nose.. Dry eyes can result from an improper balance of tear production and drainage.. ...
Itchy eyes can be caused by a number of reasons including allergies, inflammation or infections. In any case, rubbing them can often make things worse. For allergies, rubbing the eyes can actually make your eyes more itchy because it can spread more allergens around. Further, there is an inflammatory cascade response that is aggravated by eye rubbing, which can cause the intense fluid swelling and redness often associated with allergies. If you have an infection, rubbing your eye can cause more irritation, and often spreads the infection to your other eye, and potentially to the people around you. In fact, that may be how you got that infection to begin with. The hands carry a good amount of germs and bacteria, and your eyes are an easy access point for these germs to enter. Touching something, even as common as a doorknob or towel, which someone else with an eye infection also touched, is a common cause of conjunctivitis and other contagious eye infections. ...

Purpose: : To determine the effect of panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) on the pulsatile ocular blood flow (POBF) and the pulse amplitude (PA) in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). Methods: : Twelve eyes of 12 patients with PDR who had undergone PRP were included. The POBF and the PA were measured with Langham OBF computerized tonometry system before, 1 month and 6 month after the last photocoagulation. Results: : The mean POBF and PA significantly (p,0.05) decreased 1 month (589.8 +/- 74.1 microlit/min and 1.26 +/- 0.23 mmHg) and 6 months (563.39 +/- 51.7 microlit/min and 1.08 +/- 0.10 mmHg) after PRP compared with those (770.2 +/- 90.2 microlit /min and 1.61 +/- 0.24 mmHg) before PRP. Conclusions: : This is the first study to examine the effect of PRP on pulsatile ocular blood flow using the Langham tonometer in patients with PDR. The present results that the mean PA and POBF decrease after PRP indicate that total choroidal blood flow may decrease in response to PRP. ...

Dry eyes occur when your tears arent able to provide adequate moisture for your eyes. Tears can be inadequate for many reasons. For example, dry eyes may occur if you dont produce enough tears or if you produce poor-quality tears.. Dry eyes feel uncomfortable. If you have dry eyes, your eyes may sting or burn. You may experience dry eyes in certain situations, such as on an airplane, in an air-conditioned room, while riding a bike, or after looking at a computer screen for a few hours.. Treatments for dry eyes may make your eyes more comfortable. These treatments can include lifestyle changes and lubricating eyedrops. For more-serious cases of dry eyes, Restasis may be a good option.. The FDA approved the prescription eye drop Restasis for the treatment of chronic dry eye. It is currently the only prescription eye drop that helps your eyes increase their own tear production with continued use.. ...
Do your eyes feel dry or look red sometimes? Do you feel a burning or gritty sensation in your eyes? You may be suffering from dry eye.. Dry eye is a condition that occurs when your eye is not sufficiently lubricated by your tears. There are two types of dry eye: aqueous tear-deficient dry eye, in which theres an inadequate amount of the watery component of tears (decreased tear production), and evaporative dry eye, in which theres increased tear evaporation caused by an imbalance in the composition of your tears. Tears are comprised of three layers (oil, water and mucous) and problems with any layer can cause dry eye.. Symptoms of dry eye may include:. · Pain and redness of the eye. · Burning or stinging of the eye. · A gritty feeling as if something is in the eye. · Blurred vision episodes. · Heavy eyelids, eye fatigue. · Stringy discharge from the eye. · Watery eyes. · Nighttime driving difficulties. · Decreased tolerance for reading, computer work or an activity with sustained ...
Strabismus, the technical term for eye turn, occurs when one of the two eyes does not aim at the spot one is looking at. An eye may turn inwards (esotropia), outwards (exotropia), or upwards hypertropia. The eye turn may occur some of the time (intermittent) or all the time (constant). When the eyes are not aligned the following may happen: the patient sees double (usually occurring when the eye turn develops after 6 years of age); one eye is suppressed or turned off to avoid double vision; there is a loss of two-eyed depth perception (stereopsis or 3D); and/or the eyes develop abnormal binocular coordination. If one eye turns all the time or if the eyes have different eye glass prescriptions, e.g. one is mildly farsighted while the other is markly farsighted, then one eye sees clearly while the other sees blurred. The lack of clear vision in one eye will cause it to develop Amblyopia(commonly called lazy eye).. To develop normal vision babies require clear images in each eye which are perfectly ...
Correct treatment for an eye injury immediately following an accident can prevent loss of sight.. Specks in the eye. Do not rub your eye. Lift the upper lid over the lower lid allowing the lower lashes to brush the speck off the inside of the upper lid.. Blink a few times and let the eye move the particle out. If the speck remains, keep your eye closed and seek medical help.. Cuts of the eye and lid. Seek medical help immediately. Do not attempt to wash out the eye or remove an object stuck in the eye. Never apply pressure to the injured eye or eyelid. Be careful not to rub the eye.. Blows to the eye. Immediately apply an ice compress to the eye to reduce pain and swelling. A black eye or blurred vision can be a sign of damage inside the eye. See your ophthalmologist immediately.. Chemical burns. Flood the eye with water immediately using your fingers to keep the eye open as wide as possible.. Hold your head under a faucet or shower, or pour water gently into the eye from any container for at ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - tramtrack is a transcriptional repressor required for cell fate determination in the Drosophila eye. AU - Xiong, Wen Cheng. AU - Montell, Craig. PY - 1993/6. Y1 - 1993/6. N2 - Cell fate determination in the Drosophila eye is mediated by inductive events between neighboring cells in the eye imaginai disc. These inductive signals lead to differential gene expression necessary for the elaboration of different cell types in the compound eye. Several putative transcription factors have been identified previously that may be required for expression of genes that specify cell fate in the compound eye. Repression of inappropriate gene expression may be as important as transcriptional activation in the determination of cell fate. We report the identification of a mutation in the Drosopbila tramtrack (ttk) locus that is required for cell fate determination in the compound eye. ttk is expressed as two proteins, p69 and p88, shown previously to bind to the regulatory regions of several ...
Chemical exposure to the eye may result in a chemical burn to the eye. Damage is usually limited to the front segment of the eye, including the cornea, the conjunctiva and occasionally the internal eye structures of the eye, including the lens. Burns that penetrate deeper into the anterior chamber are the most severe, often causing cataracts.. Note: The RMA SOP factor is limited to chemical burns where the chemical penetrates into the anterior chamber.. Chemical burns to the eye can be divided into three categories: alkali burns, acid burns, and irritants.. Alkali burns are the most dangerous. Alkalis (chemicals that have a high pH level) penetrate the surface of the eye and can cause severe injury to both the external structures like the cornea and the internal structures like the lens.. Common alkali substances contain the hydroxides of ammonia, lye, potassium hydroxide, magnesium, and lime. Substances that may contain these chemicals include fertilizers, cleaning products (ammonia), drain ...
Not all patients with Parkinsons disease will experience altered vision or eyesight problems but some will. These problems can affect vision from a neurological perspective and the condition of the eyes and eye area.. As Parkinsons disease affects movement, it can affect the movement of the eyes. This can be most noticeable, and problematic, when watching fast-moving action. It can also affect everyday activities like reading. Eyes may also have trouble tracking together or converging when watching something that is coming towards them.. Many people associate Parkinsons disease with involuntary shaking or twitching, particularly of the hands and limbs. This can affect the eyes and eyelids, too, and manifest as involuntary eye closing, blinking, and twitching. If the opposite problem occurs and people arent able to blink their eyes as much as they should, dry eyes can also occur..

Purpose: : GPR18 is a recently deorphanized lipid receptor that is activated by the chief psychoactive ingredient of marijuana, THC, as well as behaviorally-inactive cannabinoids (e.g. abnormal cannabidiol (Abn-CBD)). This G protein-coupled receptor is related to CB1/CB2 and GPR55 receptors. Strong evidence now supports N-arachidonoyl glycine (NAGly) as the endogenous ligand of GPR18. The presence and/or function of any GPR18-based ocular signaling system remains essentially unstudied. The objectives of this research are: 1) to determine the disposition of GPR18 receptors and ligands in anterior murine eye, 2) examine the effect on intraocular pressure (IOP) by GPR18 and GPR55 in a murine model, including knockout mice for CB1 (CB1-/-), CB2 (CB2-/-) or GPR55 (GPR55-/-). Methods: : IOP was measured by rebound tonometry in C57Bl/J6 (C57), CB1-/-, and GPR55-/- anesthetized mice (isoflurane 2-3%) following a 5 μl topical application of 2% Abn-CBD, 1% 0-1602, 1% NAGly or vehicle (Tocrisolve®). ...
As mentioned above, many of the symptoms of dry eye involve varying sensations of dryness including, burning, stinging, itching, grittiness, soreness or a feeling that there is something in the eye. The eyes may also be red and sensitive to light, wind or smoke. Vision may be blurred or doubled and the eyes may fatigue easily. Another common symptom is that vision seems blurry but clears when you blink (especially common when reading or using a computer). This is because the tear film does not form a smooth coat over the eye surface or it evaporates too quickly causing a blur.. You may also notice pain, some discharge from the eye (especially upon waking in the morning) and experience discomfort when wearing contact lenses. One of the most confusing symptoms of dry eye is actually excessive tearing, which occurs because the eyes are trying to compensate for the lack of moisture - however the tears produced are low quality and dont properly hydrate the surface of the eye.. ...

Diabetes Mellitus is a systemic disease that affects the small blood vessels of the body. Your primary care doctor may recommend a yearly eye examination. The eye is the only organ in the body where the small blood vessels can be seen directly by examination and without invasive testing. The status of the blood vessels of the eye may indicate the status of the blood vessels to the rest of the body. This information is important in the management of diabetes. The eye may also be affected by diabetes. Diabetes can cause bleeding and swelling of the retina (the receptive layer that lines the back of the eye). Diabetic eye disease needs careful attention, as serious cases may lead to significant vision loss and even complete blindness.. Yearly dilated eye examinations have become a standard of care for diabetic patients. More frequent exams are needed for patients with existing diabetic eye disease. Early diagnosis is critical in management of diabetic eye disease.. We use the Carl Zeiss Visucam pro ...
Even if you dont wear corrective lenses, everyone needs to have his or her eyes examined regularly by an optometrist. Along with correcting how people see, optometrists can assist you in maintaining your eye health by catching eye diseases as they develop. They can also see indications of other medical conditions developing.. Disease of the Eyes. Some of the eye diseases an optometrist can diagnosis during an examination include glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and dry eyes.. Diagnosing these diseases in their early stages can prevent eyesight loss or damage to the cornea, in the case of dry eyes. A Midland optometrist performs several tests during an examination to look for eye problems and signs of health problems and to test focus by doing a refraction test. While most tests are done when the doctor looks into the eyes, he or she may do an eye pressure test by blowing a puff of air into a patients eye.. This type of eye pressure test, which is called a ...
Your eyes may often water or tear. You may notice a small amount of white or creamy drainage at times. If you have no pain or other symptoms, home treatment is usually all that is needed.

If there is a foreign body in your eye, such as a piece of grit, your eye doctor may try and remove it. They will put anesthetic eye drops in your eye first, in order to numb it and prevent any pain.. If the foreign body is easy to get to, it may be possible to remove it by simply rinsing your eye with water, or by wiping it away with a cotton wool bud or triangle of card. However, if this is unsuccessful, your eye doctor may try and remove the foreign body by lifting it out with the tip of a small metal instrument.. The foreign body could be stuck underneath your upper eyelid, especially if you can feel something there, or you have scratches or grazes (abrasions) on the top half of the transparent outer layer of your eye (cornea). If this is the case, it may be necessary to gently turn your eyelid inside out in order to remove the foreign body.. Once the anesthetic eye drops have worn off, your eye may feel a bit uncomfortable until your abrasion heals.. Whatever is happening with your eyes or ...

Most acute eye problems can be related to simple eye infections. The most common of these is conjunctivitis where the conjunctiva membrane that covers the eye becomes infected. The most common cause is bacterial infections, however sometimes eye problems can be also caused by other conditions such as viral infections, allergic conditions and even dry eyes.. Dry eyes are usually part of the aging process and are common in persons over 40 years of age. The cause is that the body does not produce enough of the right eye lubricants and hence a dry scratchy feeling, even though the eyes may be watering. Its most common cause of flareup is environmental, some drugs, or too much use of computers and television. Lubricant eye drops can relieve the symptoms of this condition.. Allergic conjunctivitis is often mistaken for eye infections because there may be a discharge. The presence of wind and the associated pollen & spores in the air may be the cause. It usually does in isolation and my be accompanied ...

Lazy eye, known as Amblyopia refers to a condition of the brain where it ignores visual information from one eye and vision in that eye does not get better with any type of glasses, contact lenses or surgery.. Lazy Eye (Amblyopia 懒惰眼) can be caused by an eye turn. The eye which is not looking where you want to look has to be ignored because the brain cannot make sense out of two different images.. It can also occur when one eye doesnt see as clearly as the other eye and it isnt caught early enough. When this happens the eye becomes lazy, because it isnt being used. Lazy Eye (Amblyopia, Mata Malas 懒惰眼) does not go away on its own. While many physicians were taught that it is not treatable past the age of 7 or 9 years of age, new research in the field of optometric vision therapy has shown otherwise. Depending on the reason, lazy eye therapy/training can be done no matter how old you are.. ...

Well, in my opinion, droopy eyes cannot lead to dry eyes, so you do not need to worry about it. Generally speaking, there are many reasons which can just cause droopy eyes. For example, eye strain can just tighten your eye skin, and then in a long term, it will just affect your eyelid, leading to droopy eyelids. In that way, your eyes will look older. But on the other hand, for dry eyes, you should know that if your eyes do not make enough tears to coat the eye, you may have dry eye. And it can be caused by many factors, such as vitamin deficiency. Also, eye infection is another factor too. But there is nothing to do with droopy eyes.
Dry eye is a common and often chronic problem.. As we age, tear production diminishes, leaving most individuals over the age of 65 with at least some symptoms of dry eye. Yet, dry eye is not just a medical condition that affects the elderly. Other causes of the common eye problem include: medications like antihistamines, blood pressure medicine and antidepressants; medical conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes and thyroid problems; inflammation of the eye surface or eyelids as well as abnormal turning of the eyelids; smoke, wind and dry climates; long-term use of contact lenses; and refractive eye surgeries such as LASIK.. Symptoms of dry eye include:. • Stinging. • Burning. • Scratchiness. • Stringy mucus. • Excessive irritation from smoke and wind. • Discomfort when wearing contact lenses. • Watering eyes.

Eyecare experts recommend you have a complete eye exam every one to three years, depending on your age, risk factors, and physical condition.. Children. Some experts estimate that approximately 5% to 10% of pre-schoolers and 25% of school-aged children have vision problems. According to the American Optometric ...
A 30-year-old man was hammering a nail into the wall when a chip of the nail broke off and entered the eye. It took three major eye operations to restore his vision.. Mr T who was doing gardening had bent down to pick up a weed when a thorn of a bush pierced his eye. He had to endure months of treatment following that.. A 5-year-old girl poked her eye with a pair of scissors and suffered bleeding in the eye that required emergency treatment and months of follow-up eye care. She underwent two eye surgeries following that in order to restore her eyesight.. Ms L was washing her new car when the upturned wiper blade poked her eye. She had to undergo eye surgery along with a plastic repair of her eyelid.. All the above are actual scenarios of patients who had suffered trauma to the eye..

Strabismus, often known as crossed eyes, occurs when a person cannot align his or her eyes on the same point simultaneously. The eyes appear to be pointed towards different directions and are misaligned.. This is usually caused by muscle weakness in one or even both eyes. The condition seems to occur within families. Sometimes, it might be the result of severe farsightedness that was not appropriately treated. Significant trauma to the head can also lead to crossed eyes.. Strabismus is very obvious as the eyes seem to point towards different directions. However, other signs usually occur in children, including eyes that dont move simultaneously with each other, tilting of the head to one specific side, and squinting using only a single eye. Treatments include eyeglasses, contact lenses, prescription eye drops, surgery, and patching of the normal eye.. ...
Animals benefit from a variety of unique eye designs, but where did they come from? Two clearly seen eye observations point to Genesis origins.. First, animals within a single, broad group often use different eye designs. For example, most vertebrates have the classic camera eye. They use a transparent cornea and convex lens to refract (i.e., bend) images onto a light-sensitive layer of tissue lining the back of the eye called the retina.. The supposed evolutionary ancestor of all vertebrates should have passed its specific camera eye design down to its descendants-modern vertebrates. But certain vertebrates use completely different eyes. For example, the deep sea spookfish uses reflective mirror lenses, not refractive lenses.1 Also, the chameleons pinhole eye design uses concave lenses that spread out a narrow section of incoming light onto a broader retina.. Now for the second observation. Similar eye designs occur in animals from very different groups. Eye designs crisscross imagined ...
The human eye is an organ which reacts to light and pressure. As a sense organ, the mammalian eye allows vision. Human eyes help provide a three dimensional, moving image, normally coloured in daylight. Rod and cone cells in the retina allow conscious light perception and vision including color differentiation and the perception of depth. The human eye can differentiate between about 10 million colors and is possibly capable of detecting a single photon. Similar to the eyes of other mammals, the human eyes non-image-forming photosensitive ganglion cells in the retina receive light signals which affect adjustment of the size of the pupil, regulation and suppression of the hormone melatonin and entrainment of the body clock. The eye is not shaped like a perfect sphere, rather it is a fused two-piece unit, composed of the anterior segment and the posterior segment. The anterior segment is made up of the cornea, iris and lens. The cornea is transparent and more curved, and is linked to the larger ...
Retinoblastoma - Strabismus (crossed eyes), a whitish or yellowish glow through the pupil, decreasing/loss of vision, sometimes the eye may be red and painful. Retinoblastoma can occur in one or both eyes. This tumor occurs in babies and young children. It is called RB for short. Check photographs, normal healthy eyes would have the red eye reflex, but a white/yellow dot instead of the red eye reflex can indicate a tumor or some other kind of eye disease. Any photos of a child/children which have a white/yellow dot instead of the red eye reflex should be evaluated by an eye doctor ...
The eye allows us to see and interpret the shapes, colors and dimensions of objects in the world by processing the light they reflect. The eye can see in dim light or bright light, but it cannot see an object when light is absent. The light rays are changed into electrical signals by the eye and they are then sent to the brain, where these electrical signals as interpreted as visual images.. The human eye can be compared to a camera that gathers, focuses, and transmits light through a lens to create an image of the environment. In a camera, the image is created on film; in the eye, the image is crated on the retina, a thin layer of light sensitive cells at the back of the eye. The lens of the eye bends, or refracts, light that enters the eye.. A clear, transparent covering in the front of the eye, called the cornea, also helps focus light on the retina. Nerve fibers, extending back from the retinas nerve cells, come together behind the retina to form the optic nerve, a cable of nerve fibers ...
When your eyes water, theyre making tears, just like when you cry. The tears from watering help protect your eyes. How? By keeping them moist and washing out dust and other foreign stuff that gets in there. The tears from watering eyes might only fill your eyes or they might trickle down your face.. Whether youre crying or your eyes are just tearing, the liquid in your eyes is created the same way. All tears come out of tear glands, or lacrimal (say: LAH-krum-ul) glands, found way up under your upper eyelids. Tears wash down from the glands and over your eyes.. Some of the tears drain out of your eyes through tear ducts, or lacrimal ducts. These ducts are tiny tubes that run between your eyes and your nose. Each tear duct is like a tiny bathtub drain. When the tears fill up your eyes, they drain out through the tear ducts. You have two tear ducts - one near the inside corner of each eye. You can see these holes if you gently pull down your lower eyelid a bit.. If tears are flowing quickly, ...
There are many other exercises you can try at home to help strengthen your eyes and combat eye strain. Try one or a combination of all six to develop a routine that can help you work those eye muscles.. 1. Try rubbing your palms together to generate some heat and then putting your hands over your closed eyes and applying some gentle pressure. Allow the heat from your palms to warm your eyes and relax them for a few minutes.. 2. Computer-induced eye strain contributes to a lack of blinking which can dry out your eyes. A simple exercise goal is to try and blink once every four seconds to keep your eyes lubricated. Sounds simple but when you are engrossed in computer tasks, it is easy to forget.. 3. When you feel your shoulders tightening up and your neck starting to ache, you probably start some relaxing neck rolls to loosen up. You can do the same for your eyes. Close your eyes and roll them in circles. This will help keep your eyes well lubricated and can ease the strain.. 4. In addition to the ...
Purpose: The clusterin gene encodes a multi-functional protein that has been identified in different tissues, including a number of different eye tissues, primarily in the mouse and to a much lesser extent in humans. Clusterin has been implicated in a number of cellular processes such as lipid transport, membrane integrity, apoptosis, and neurodegeneration, all of which could be important to the biology of the eye. In the current communication, we provide data that confirms the expression of clusterin in a number of different human eye tissues and establishes the expression profile of this gene in monkey derived eye tissues. The issue that we sought to examine is whether a broad profile of clusterin expression in the eye is consistent in primates (monkey and human). Methods: The majority of our study was done using monkey eye tissues. Where possible, we have used human tissues in order to confirm published findings. Northern and western analysis was performed using tissues derived from monkey eyes. In
