Ongoing research shows possibility of regeneration of eye cells in the future
A small zebra fish swimsWe’re always interested in the research that is being done and what is being discovered through these studies.

Recently, scientists have been looking at zebrafish, a species that has the unique ability to regenerate certain types of cells. Researchers believe they have discovered how this regeneration occurs and are trying to mimic it in humans.

This video uses animation and simple language to illustrate why some diseases, such as Usher Syndrome and Retinitis Pigmentosa, cause deteriorating sight that ultimately leads to blindness. It then goes on to explain the zebrafish discovery.

Watch the video for an interesting look at what is being done in one area of the research field.
