New imaging technique allows doctors to see damage from eclipse

1 post in this topic

A young woman named Nia Payne viewed the recent eclipse through glasses that, sadly, were not sufficient to protect her eyes. Using adaptive optics, doctors were able to clearly see the crescent shaped damage the sun's ultraviolet rays caused to her retina. She will have to live with that for the time being - but the technique, which for the first time allowed doctors to view damage at the cellular level in vivo, holds promise. In order to correct a problem, doctors must generally first visualize it, so this is an important first step.
