Loss of #vision due to #diabetic eye complications and age-related visual conditions is on the rise in #SouthAfrica.

A worrisome fact is that while the number of diabetics in South Africa has risen sharply from 1.3 million in 2010 to 4.5 million in 2019, it is expected to reach 6 million by 2030.

Researchers at University of Washington have modified the standard process of #OCT (optical coherence tomography) to detect minute changes in response to light in individual photoreceptors in the living eye.

The technique has potential in the testing of therapies such as #stem cells or #gene therapy to treat #retinal disease.

Ocular Manifestations and Clinical Characteristics of Children With Laboratory-Confirmed COVID-19 in Wuhan, China

In a study of children hospitalized with #COVID-19 in Wuhan, #China, 49 (22.7%) were found to have #ocular manifestations, including #conjunctival discharge, eye rubbing, and conjunctival congestion. Children with systemic #symptoms or #cough were more likely to develop ocular symptoms, which were mild, and recovered or improved with minimal eye drops or self-healing.

As a part of Retina Global's Project #Kenya, in partnership with Community Health Partners Kenya (CHP-Kenya), Community Health Volunteers (CHV) were trained in eye diseases to help identify eye disease in the community they serve. CHVs then reached out in the community to locate patients with possible eye problems for the first screening program.

John Sironka from the Noruk County Hospital was on hand to screen and evaluate these patients at the Ewaso Ngiro Clinic.

We look forward to working with our partners in Ewaso Ngiro and Noruk, as we expand the project to benefit more people in the community.

The project is led by Ms. Diane Steinhilber, Retina Global.

While #COVID-19 has affected all of us around the world, we have been busy reviewing our current on-going plans and organizing for the future.

As part of that activity, we initiated Retina Global #Kenya project with Ms. Diane Steinhilber as the lead for the project and help from Dr. Ciku Mathenge, we are focused on providing retinal services to the underserved communities in the #Mara region of Kenya, in partnership with Community Health Partners Kenya (CHP).

CHP organized a briefing session for their Community Health Volunteers, to educate and inform them about the eye and retina, and what they need to know in reaching out to people in their community who may have retinal diseases.

Eyenuk, Inc. has received 510(k) clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (#FDA) to market its #EyeArt® autonomous #AI System for diabetic retinopathy (DR).

EyeArt is indicated to automatically detect more than mild DR (mtmDR) and vision-threatening DR (vtDR) in eyes of adults diagnosed with #diabetes who have not been previously diagnosed with more than mild diabetic #retinopathy.

Does the ophthalmologist run the risk of #COVID19 exposure from surfaces in the #eye #clinic?

Study shows presence of #COVID-19 viral material in a circle 1 m in diameter around where the patients sat in the clinic. However, real-time PCR could only detect viral material, not the infectivity of these #virus samples.

In a presentation during American Society of Retina SpecialistsAnnual Meeting (virtual this year), Wills Eye Hospital's Chief of Retina Service, Dr. Carl Regillo, will present the data from Genentech's #Archway study that evaluated Port Delivery System with ranibizumab (PDS).

98.4% of PDS #AMD patients were able to go six months without needing additional treatment and achieved vision outcomes equivalent to patients receiving monthly #ranibizumab eye injections.

Helping prevent blindness

We focus on retinal diseases, which form a significant chunk of reasons why people are going blind these days. With changes in food habits and more stress, more people are being diagnosed with conditions such as diabetic retinopathy. We help people get the benefit of a retinal exam, especially in areas where there is none. Help us help more people!
