Every few seconds, the eyes blink but it does not impede clear vision. A team of scientists explains how and why this happens.
Studies show that kids who didn't have enough sunlight may develop eyesight disorder during their adulthood.
Though carrots can't give you ultra-night vision, just like how the health officials said decades ago, the vitamin A content can help maintain healthy eyes.
A Harvard University-led study suggests that eating more nitrate-rich green leafy vegetables can significantly lower the risk of developing Glaucoma- an irreversible eye disease leading to vision loss and permanent blindness.
The discovery of three new glaucoma-causing genes offers fresh hopes in advancing early detection techniques, prevention methods, and treatment of glaucoma.
A new cure for short-sightedness has been discovered - not only effective, but scientists have unveiled how eye issues can be worked out with the help of daily intake of eye drops.
According to a new survey, many Americans reported that losing their eyesight would have the greatest impact on their day-to-day lives.
Researchers found that reindeers' eye colors change from gold to blue during the wintertime.
Based from the findings of two different studies, researchers concluded that children who played outdoors might be at a lower risk for developing short-sightedness.
Researchers discovered that the lack of the long chain of fatty acids is not cause of childhood blindness as researchers previously believed.
The BioScience Talks podcast features discussions of topical issues related to the biological sciences. By altering the heritability of certain traits, gene drive technologies have the potential to spread desired genes through wild populations. In practice, this could lead to mosquito populations that, for example, bear traits making them resistant to the spread of malaria. Despite the huge potential for improving human well-being, concern exists that gene drives could fail in the wild or, perhaps more concerning, spread beyond their intended target populations.
