    By the time Abby Beckley pulled the second wiggly translucent worm from her left eye in August 2016, she knew something weird and unusual was happening.The 26-year-old woman from Brookings who was working as a summer deck hand on the Chirikof, a 58-foot commercial fishing boat plying the waters of Southeast Alaska near Prince of Wales Island, was puzzled by the tiny worms that wiggled and died on her index finger minutes after she gently tugged them from her irritated eye.Beckley and a friend searched the Internet for answers, but found little information that helped. At first, they thought it...

    Chinese street barber Xiong Gaowu deftly scrapes a straight razor along the inside of his customer's eyelid. "You should be gentle, very, very gentle," said Xiong, who performs traditional eyelid shaves at his roadside location in Chengdu, the capital of the southwestern province of Sichuan. Customers swear by the practice of "blade wash eyes", as it is known in Mandarin, saying they trust Xiong's skill with the blade. "No, it's not dangerous," said 68-year-old Zhang Tian. "My eyes feel refreshed after shaving and I feel comfortable." Xiong, 62, said he learned the technique in the 1980s and serves up to...

    This is the cutest that spider mating has ever been.You don’t often feel bad for spiders. But when a fuzzy, black-eyed jumping spider raises his green forearms into the air, wiggles his butt, and flashes his orange knees, only to have a lady spider literally turn around in the middle of his dance...what kind of monster doesn’t feel a pang of empathy? It doesn’t even matter that arachnids are unlikely to experience rejection and angst the way humans do—you feel for the little guy. It’s somehow worse once you know that male jumping spiders evolved this ability specifically to woo...

Nurse practitioner Trish Patterson tells KRCR-TV in Redding, California that she hasn’t seen any cases of damage by looking directly at the sun but she and her colleagues have seen a few patients who experienced pain after putting sunblock in their eyes.

    The leech man: Lawyer hopes nightly blood-sucking treatment will help return his sight after his 'schizophrenic son blinded him'A lawyer is hoping that a nightly blood-sucking leech treatment will help return his eyesight after his schizophrenic son allegedly blinded him in a blitz attack. John Dunlap, 80, is placing his trust in an experimental treatment that requires him to attach several leeches around his eyes so that one day he might see again. The lawyer from Memphis started the bizarre therapy after his bipolar and schizophrenic son Andrew, 41, allegedly attacked Dunlap and blinded him in 2015. With the help...

    An experimental drug is showing promise against an untreatable eye disease that blinds older adults — and intriguingly, it seems to work in patients who carry a particular gene flaw that fuels the damage to their vision. Age-related macular degeneration, or AMD, is the leading cause of vision loss among seniors, gradually eroding crucial central vision. There are different forms but more than 5 million people worldwide, and a million in the U.S., have an advanced type of so-called "dry" macular degeneration that has no treatment. First patients may notice blurriness when they look straight ahead. Eventually many develop blank...

    I always assumed that she was a natural blue of the nordic-WASP variety, until Dick Morris said otherwise. I knew her hair had lightened over the ears, but I assummed it was originally a shade of dirty b;onde. If she has indeed eyes as brown as Obamas, could it be that she wears blue contacts for racial reasons?

    Stem cells could help treat people with cataracts and even some who are blind by regenerating eye tissue and replacing flawed lenses, according to new experiments in children and rabbits. In order for people to see properly, both the lens of the eye and the cornea — the layer of tissue that covers the eye in front of the lens — must be transparent. Current treatments for people who have clouding in the lens or cornea involve artificial implants or donor transplants, respectively, but these surgical procedures can be risky, researchers said. In the new research, scientists performed minimally invasive...

    Ulster University scientists have made a remarkable breakthrough which it is hoped could cure hereditary blindness. They have discovered a treatment that can target the gene that leads to corneal dystrophy—a condition that causes cloudy deposits on the cornea. […] Currently, those with corneal dystrophy face a lifetime of treatment and the only option for those who go blind is a corneal transplant from a donor eye, but this has risks and varying success rates. […] But the new treatment, developed by scientists at the University’s School of Biomedical Science, currently involves just one injection into the eye, which destroys...

    Pupils' shape and size can reveal whether your kitten is a hunter or the hunted, research shows, Zee News reports. The study also said that species with pupils that are vertical slits are more likely to be ambush predators that are active both day and night. "For species that are active both night and day, like domestic cats, slit pupils provide the dynamic range needed to help them see in dim light yet not get blinded by the midday sun," said lead researcher Martin Banks, professor of optometry at University of California-Berkeley. The vertical slits of domestic cats and...

    Science News Teach children outside to save their vision, say scientists By Sarah Knapton, Science Editor 5:35PM BST 23 Apr 2015 Children should be allowed to study outside to stop them becoming short-sighted, a new study suggests. Researchers believe that youngsters are spending so long inside for lessons that it is damaging their eyesight. In China, pupils are already being taught in huge translucent boxes to try and halt their vision decline after a study found that 80 per cent of children in Beijing were short-sighted. Around 40 per cent of Britons suffer from myopia, or short-sightedness, with experts warning...

    Do you have blues eyes? (Lucky you!) Are you dating someone with blue eyes? (Even luckier!) You may think the eye color similarity is no different than dating with someone with a similar hair color or skin tone, but science just revealed that BOOM: All people with blue eyes are genetically linked. Thus, you and your blue-eyed hunny are both definitely related somehow - and even weirder, your shared relative can be narrowed down to one ancestor! A study at University of Copenhagen found that because blue eyes are a genetic mutation — before said mutation, everyone in the world...
