THE ELIXIR OF LIFE, NEVER GROW OLD ...

Future of Eye Healthcare Patrick Dixon 3

Why don't some humpback whales get older? Some show degenerative changes by the age of 50 and later die of old age, but others are over 150 years old with no sign of ageing. Sturgeon fish, some lobsters and turtles are the same and only die if eaten by a predator. The answer lies in certain proteins their genes produce which slow or prevent ageing. Scientists  are now isolating these proteins and genes and some laboratory mice have lived to the equivalent of  150 human years. While its exciting to read about lenses which can reverse the loss of reading vision (click here for more information), eyedrops which can "dissolve" age related cataracts (click here for more information), wouldn't it be better if cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, heart disease and dementia could be prevented?

This was just part of the fascinating massage from Dr. Patrick Dixon, Physician and futurist at the Optegra Future of Eye Healthcare presentation last night. Click here to hear more from Patrick about staying young.

Reading books, or on PC's, tablets & Kindles - which is quicker & better?

Reading speedBooks, Kindles, iPads and PC reading speeds and satisfaction were compared (read details of the study here ...).  

Which is best? In the past, reading speeds in books were claimed to be faster by up to 25 times, but this well done study showed the iPad to be 6% slower than a book and a Kindle 11% slower. However the difference between the Kindle & iPad was not statistically significant so it wouldn't be fair to say that the Kindle was worse.

Users were also asked to rate their satisfaction on a 1–7 scale, with 7 being the best score. The iPad, Kindle, and printed books all scored fairly high at 5.8, 5.7, and 5.6, respectively. The PC, however, scored an abysmal 3.6!

But when we get to about age 45, all reading, whether it is on PC's, iPads, Kindles or books becomes frustrating because of aging changes in the lenses of our eyes (called presbyopia - read more ...). It is frustrating and makes us feel old, but there are solutions. Click here to read more about new, advanced lens implants that can free you from the frustration of reading glasses.

Eyedrops to dissolve cataracts?!

Eyedrops 2According to the World Health Organisation, about 20 billion people have cataracts & the greatest burden of this treatable blindness is borne by the poorest countries. Thousands of cataract surgeries are done every day but surgery programmes are not keeping up with the increase, especially in poor countries where facilties & funding are scarce.

Until recently the only  treatment for cataracts has been surgery. But scientists have found that Lanesterol  eye drops can "dissolve" cloudy cataract proteins & it is a safe, natural compound found in our bodies. Trials of these eye drops will start within a year. These drops could change our lives & the lives of millions in poor countries.

Read about the cataract epidemic in this eye surgery textbook chapter written by  Mark & about the eyedrops in the Telegraph newspaper.
