Between age or caused by injury, the vitreous can become depleted. This will the n require surgical replenishment to restore the vision. Current interventions have severe limitations which led to a team of international researchers headed by scientist at University in Tokyo to develop a hydrogel that could potentially be an excellent replacement for vitreous.
Read the story below to see how these scientist are working with this hydrogel to change this problem:
