Could bionic eye end blindness?
Jens completely lost his sight 18 years ago, but with the use of special glasses, he can find his way through rooms. By Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Kristi Petersen (CNN) Artificial vision for the blind was once the stuff of science fiction Lt. Geordi La Forge's visor on "Star Trek" or the bionic eye of "The Six Million Dollar Man." But now, a limited form of artificial vision is a reality one some say is one of the greatest triumphs in medical history. "We are now at a watershed," Joseph Lazzaro, author of "Adaptive Technologies for Learning and Work Environments," told CNN. "We are at the beginning of the end of blindness with this type of technology." Any scientific advance would have broad implications. According to statistics from Research to Prevent Blindness, Inc., 1.1 million people in the United States are legally blind, while worldwide 42 million people are without sight. The Dobelle Institute is among several institutions trying in essence to create a new cornea through technology. The cornea allows light into the interior of the eye.

142. Introduction To IAPB-International Agency For The Prevention Of Blindness
Leads an international effort in mobilising resources for blindness prevention activities.
There are an estimated 45 million blind people and 1.5 million blind children in the world. Over 90% of the blind live in developing countries. Because of the increase in life expectancy and the projected increase in world population, this number is likely to rise to more than 75 million by the year 2020 if current trends continue. Of every ten blind people, seven live in Asia and two in Africa. Six of the ten can be cured by cataract surgery and a further three could be prevented from going blind if eye care services were readily available. Blindness is therefore mainly a problem of developing countries, but a problem, which could be avoided in up to 80% of cases. WHAT IS IAPB? The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness was established in 1975 as a coordinating, umbrella organisation to lead an international effort in mobilising resources for blindness prevention activities. Its first major achievement was to promote the establishment of a WHO Programme for Prevention of Blindness, with which it has remained strongly linked. OBJECTIVES Within the mandate of combating avoidable blindness, the Agency has major objectives. These are:

Smoking and blindness
Strong evidence for the link, but public awareness lags While most people and many patients attending eye clinics recognise many adverse health hazards of tobacco smoking, they remain largely unaware of its link with blindness. Although smoking is associated with several eye diseases, including nuclear cataract and thyroid eye disease, the most common cause of smoking related blindness is age related macular degeneration, which results in severe irreversible loss of central vision. Current treatment options are of only partial benefit to selected patients.
