The study revealed that people with diabetic retinopathy, the presence of lesions in the periphery of their retina substantially increases the risk that the disease will progress more rapidly.

Human eye can see ‘invisible’ infrared light under certain conditions: study

For the first time, researchers found that under certain conditions, human eye can sense “invisible” infra-red light. Using cells from the retinas of mice and people and powerful lasers that emit pulses of infra-red light, the research team found that when laser light pulses rapidly, light-sensing cells in the retina sometimes get a double hit of infrared energy. When that happens, ...
