New technique shows promise in restoring near vision without glasses (4/6/2013)

By middle age, most people have age-related declines in near vision requiring bifocals or reading glasses. An emerging technique called hyperopic orthokeratology may provide a new alternative for restoring near vision without the need for glasses, according to a study, "Refractive Changes from Hyperopic Orthokeratology Monovision in Presbyopes," appearing in the Apr. issue of Optometry and Vision Science, official journal of the American Academy of Optometry. ...> Full Article


Dementia costs top those for heart disease or cancer, study finds (4/5/2013)

The most-detailed examination of the costs of dementia in the United States finds the disease is more costly to the nation than either heart disease or cancer.
