Retinal Instrument for Removing Scar Tissue from the Eye The retina of the eye is only 160 to 240 microns (millionths of a meter) thick and is generally transparent. Retinal scar tissue, a common problem for the elderly, is difficult to remove successfully. Surgeons currently peel it with an instrument that can result in a vision-threatening injury when misaligned or applied with too much pressur…

Nano-Cornea And Retina Medical Devises R1 Nanosystems and Structures Group Cornea NanoPunch and Retina Velcro Surgical Instruments Researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, in conjunction with the University of Tennessee's Hamilton Eye Institute have developed a set of novel, microfabricated surgical instruments (Figure 1). These inclu…

Microrod Array Treats Erosion, Delivers Drugs to Cornea A device and a method for treating abrasion and recurrent erosion of the cornea of the eye were invented at ORNL. The cornea, responsible for two-thirds of the eye s optical power, can suffer recurrent erosion when a defect in its outermost layer, the epithelium, prevents epithelial cells from attaching to the adjacent Bowman s layer and str…
