Washington: An Indian-origin researcher-led team of scientists has yielded new insight regarding the regulation of intraocular pressure (IOP) in glaucoma – an irreversible disease that is the leading cause of blindness. Sanjoy Bhattacharya and colleagues at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine validate their hypothesis that the response of aqueous humour (fluid produced in the eye) to mechanical stimuli at the cellular level (mechanosensing) impacts the regulation of IOP through cells converting that stimuli into chemical activity.
