Accidental Relief

The largest eye and vision research organization in the world, the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology is presenting it's Annual Meeting in Florida this week.The Association is made up of over twelve thousand members and eye health professionals accumulated from over seventy countries.At the meeting a new report is being publicly presented that will announce a new class of drugs to treat nystagmus.The resulting publication only came about from a complete accident after an individual suffering from the condition accidentally sprayed a nerve agent into his affected eye.Following the accident, the patient apparently reported that his vision was improved which prompted a team of vision scientists to test the theory by using the agent on affected sheep dog subjects diagnosed with nystagmus.

Following the lab test on the animal subjects they had to conclude that the nerve agent was not only safe but it was proved as an effective treatment for it.
