Science to End BlindnessWith World Sight Day behind us, we thought it prudent to discuss some of the medical advancements that could one day restore vision to millions of people around the globe. For instance, various forms of nanotechnology and the like are literally bringing the blind and the nearly blind back into the world of the sighted, in some cases reversing blindness caused by conditions like retinitis pigmentosa. What’s more, scientists are making headway with optic nerve cell replication. Such technology could give doctors the power to rebuild the damaged neural pathways that are the root cause of so many cases of blindness.
