Age-related macular degeneration research highlighted by Fight for Sight.

FFS LOGO smallFight for Sight have posted a 2 minute video on their website – highlighting an ongoing study in the Stewart lab that examines the contribution of hydroxyapatite in the formation of sub-retinal pigment epithelial deposits. These deposits are a hallmark of age-related maciular degeneration, a common cause of blindness in older individuals. The video which features Dr Stewart and Dr Imre Lengyel (from the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology) was filmed during a recent visit to the charity.
