Hello, I've been working in optics since 1970 and licensed as an Optician in Ontario , Canada since 1973. I have had my own independent optical store since 1980.
How are my computer speakers picking up sounds? I can hear a couple talking and the sounds in their home as she does dishes .?
It's like I had a microphone in someones home. I hear them preparing breakfast , then cleaning up after. How is that happening ?7 AnswersOther - Computers6 years ago
I received this from Info-Clip...an online optical news magazine.
It is of interest to all myopes and the optometrists.
The title is a statement, not a question...lol
Scientists have known for a long time that heredity plays a role in the development of myopia. Now they have uncovered a gene associated with the disorder.
That gene is called RASGRF1. Researchers from Duke University Medical Center conducted a two-phase study, first on a group of twins, then on 13,414 adults. Study findings posted on September 12 on the Nature Genetics website showed that the RASGRF1 gene has a strong association with myopia. To confirm these findings, researchers worked with a team from King’s College in London to create mice that were missing the correct gene. These mice showed changes in their eye lenses.
According to Dr. Terri Young, an ophthalmologist at Duke University, the discovery of a gene is particularly promising. “The eye is already an organ of choice for gene therapy, for example, because the eye’s small volume and self-contained area allow the therapy to remain inside the eye in a concentrated volume,” he says.
The Duke researchers and a team from the National University of Singapore also found a second gene, the CTNDD2, related to myopia in Chinese and Japanese populat6 AnswersOptical1 decade ago
