  5. Researchers Discover Technology That Could Cure Blindness

    Have you ever wondered if it's possible to regain sight once you've lost it? According to two scientific researchers at Weill Cornell College in the U.S. believe it is more than possible.

    According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) in June 2012, there are 285 million people who are visual impaired worldwide; out of this, 39 million people are blind.

    In developing countries, cataracts are the leading causes of blindness. Cataract is a clouding that forms in the eye which can block out light and cause lost vision. You can be born with cataracts or develop it in your elderly years.

    Blindness is usually caused by diseases of the retina that kills off the photoreceptors which are normally responsible for creating the neural codes for our brains to convert into images. Despite these input cells being destroyed, the diseases do not attack the retina's output cells which deliver the codes to the brain.
