Toronto, Oct 6 (IANS) Cure for glaucoma which leads to blindness may be on its way.
Canadian researchers have discovered an unidentified form of circulation in the human eye which may provide important clues to glaucoma.
The human eye is considered to lack lymphatics – a circulation responsible for pumping fluid and waste out of tissues.
But now researchers at the Universityof Toronto and the local St Michael’s Hospital say the inability to clear that fluid from the eye is linked to glaucoma which currently affects over 66 million people worldwide.
