NI scientists in cataract advance

Abstract:
The world's leading cause of blindness could soon be reversed, according to Northern Ireland scientists who have developed a new type of nanotechnology.

Researchers at the University of Ulster have said the technique will allow scientists to put nano-particles within the eye without breaking the lens.

The research was done in conjunction with a team from the University of Texas.

About 40% of people over the age of 75 develop a cataract in one or both eyes.
