London: In what could be called a major breakthrough, scientists have developed a new jab which they claim could cure blindness. An international team, led by Britain`s Yorkshire Eye Hospital has created the steroid implant which releases an anti-inflammatory drug near the retina to help stop the onsetof blindness and also restore loss of vision. The treatment, which costs 2,000 pounds, is used to prevent the sudden loss of sight caused by a blockage of veins at the back of the eye; but, it could also be used to preventmany other causes of blindness like diabetes and age-related macular degeneration, the `Sunday Express` reported.
