Blindness from Glaucoma Linked to Brain Injury. Implications for Kansas City, Missouri Traumatic Brain Injury Victims?

Comments (0)
Researchers inserted a special dye into the center brain of Glaucoma infected rodents. The dye was inserted into an optic nerve connected to the retina (the light sensitive inner layer of the eye), finding blindness doesn't start in the eye, but in the brain. Expert comment is that this discovery has potentially very profound implications for diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma if the findings are transferrable to humans. A study showing that glaucoma related blindness starts in the brain not the eye also exemplifies the range and variety of symptoms and complications that can arise out of a traumatic brain injury.
