There are many factors that can impact our eyesight, but one common source of vision loss centers on a blockage in the major vein in the eyeball, which prevents it from draining properly and damages the retina. This is known as retinal vein occlusion, and scientists at Columbia University have developed a potential new treatment in the form of eye drops that intervene in this process to preserve retinal function, with tests on human subjects now in the works.
