Eye doctors may soon administer drugs into patients’ eyes using pulsing light instead of needles. Groundbreaking research at UTMB’s department of ophthalmology and visual sciences has yielded promising results in laboratory tests, according to UTMB Dr. Bernard Godley. Millions of eye patients could benefit from the noninvasive method for treatment of infections, age-related macular degeneration and other problems. “It would be a breakthrough in the treatment of eye diseases,” said Godley.
