Surgeons from the USA, Europe & the east, including Mark shared exciting new research about understanding the causes of presbyopia (ageing of the natural lens requiring reading glasses) and treatment of it.

Get ready for Snapchat Spectacles

Snapchat spectacles 400"Snapchat Spectacles" sunglasses were launched today, but you'll need laser eye surgery if you don't want to look silly wearing them over your own glasses. The camera lens on the top right of the glasses records 10 second videos which can be downloaded or shared to Snapchat on your phone app. The light on the top left turns on when recording to alert people who don't want to feature in your video. And it is charged by its case.

They're available online for £129.99 or from funky vending machines known as "Snapbots". The Snapbots have a video screen that lets you virtually try out different colours and usually appear in a location for a day. There's one near the London Eye and other locations can be tracked online, so watch out Birmingham!

Eye transplants!?!

Neurogenic regeneration 400 tYes, eyes have been transplanted and they work. Unfortunately it's ony in tadpoles. Eyes removed and transplanted into the tadpole's tails were able to see. And it's possible because of neural regeneration. Nerves which are cut can grow again and link up to make an organ function again. This is exciting news for spinal and brain injury patients and people who have lost limbs. We still don't understand enough about this exciting field, but we're learning.

Mark @ the National Gallery

Turner painting national Gallery 400Joseph Turner painted "Rain, Steam and Speed – The Great Western Railway" when he was in his late 60's and was developing cataracts. When cataracts form the lens turns yellow. Blue and green colours are absorbed by the yellow lens, don't pass through it and aren't seen well. This famous Turner picture hanging in the National Gallery is mainly in browns, oranges and yellows. 

Pauline isn't a famous painter but click here to hear her talk about how wonderful the colours are after cataract removal and replacement with a clear, new lens, or click here to read more about cataracts.

Myopia cell discovered

Myopia familyMore than a billion people in the world have #myopia (short sightedness) and the number is increasing because it is linked to how much time people spend indoors as children.

A newly discovered retinal cell -- which is highly sensitive to light -- controls how the eye grows and develops. If the cell instructs the eye to grow too long, images fail to be focused on the retina, causing #nearsighted vision and a lifetime of corrective #glasses or #contactlenses. The eye needs to stop growing at precisely the right time during childhood when it reaches the correct length. Read more at

No more PIN numbers, passports and passwords?

Iris recognition 400Our coloured, swirling iris patterns make all eyes unique. Even identical twins have different patterns. In 1994, John Daugman, a British computer scientist invented a mathematical process for turning iris pattern images into digital codes. This paved the way for iris recognition systems used in high security buildings and airports. Iris recognition is so reliable that it might replace passports, credit card PIN numbers and all those online passwords.

Is everyone suitable for vision correction?

Expectations 400Some people aren’t suitable for vision correction surgery. Telling people not to have surgery and to keep their glasses & contact lenses is more difficult than offering them LASIK or lens implants.

This surgery is seldom needed but often wanted. If there aren’t sufficient benefits, the risks are too high or someone expects too much from the technology then a good surgeon will refuse to treat and recommend glasses.
