UA researcher’s lens makes most of peripheral vision

Macular degeneration, a fairly common affliction, can leave people unable to see what is front of them but still able to see out of the corners of their eyes. Dr. Gholam Peyman of the University of Arizona, along with other researchers, has developed a system that helps people with central vision loss read with the aid of special glasses.

Peyman, who invented LASIK surgery, has helped create a tiny implantable lens that replaces the eyeball’s natural lens, according to a University of Arizona news release. When combined with special glasses, it allows people with central vision loss to read. The system is about to enter clinical trials outside the U.S.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
