Please call for an access ID. About Mass. Eye and Ear Infirmary Founded in , Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary is an independent specialty hospital providing patient care for disorders of the eye, ear, nose, throat, head and neck. About VBF The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation is an international charitable organization that provides support and informational resources for individuals affected by hemangiomas, port wine stains and other vascular birthmarks and tumors, sponsors relevant research and promotes physician education.
Statistics show that 40, infants are born each year with a vascular birthmark that requires the opinion of a specialist.
The results of those children who go untreated for vascular birthmarks can be devastating; these results range from disfigurement, blindness, to life altering or life threatening situations. Often by the time families find a doctor who can offer the best treatment options, their case has become complicated and they have suffered unnecessarily because the opportunity to be normal and healthy had been delayed by lack of knowledge, treatment options and insurance obstacles.
With the choice of early intervention, these children can be spared the pain of social ridicule, loss of sight or sometimes life threatening crises.
Leach Boston May 10, - The Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School Department of Ophthalmology, has been awarded a grant renewal from the National Institutes of Health, National Eye Institute NEI , to recruit, train and support first-rate clinician scientists to promote translational and clinical research into cures for eye disease. This program provides financial support, protected research time, mentorship and didactic training to a select group of research-oriented junior clinician-scientists who have recently completed their fellowship programs.
Miller, Chief of Ophthalmology at Mass. The current educational and patient care needs of most large academic hospitals are not designed for optimizing the training of clinician-scientists, since the latter requires a structured program and protected time designed exclusively for in-depth commitment to research. The Harvard Department of Ophthalmology, with nearly full-time clinical and research faculty, is not only one of the largest academic departments of ophthalmology in the U.
This program will assist us in simultaneously attracting and retaining the best and brightest young minds in clinical ophthalmology who are committed to research, while maintaining our rich tradition of excellence in patient care and research," said Dr. In addition, this program will play an important role in our capacity to strengthen our commitment to two pillars of our mission, education and research. Even better, this tool promises to detect some eye diseases so early that they may be reversed before any permanent damage can occur.
Its use may well extend to other areas of the body in the future, and this tool may also give physicians a more precise way of evaluating the effectiveness of therapies. To make this discovery, Hafezi-Moghadam and colleagues combined fluorescent microspheres with molecules found on the surface of immune cells. These molecules are up-regulated early in inflammation.
The scientists took this compound and combined it once more with custom-designed imaging probes. Then they used both single- and double-combined probes targeting endothelial markers in the eyes of test animals because of the eye's unique accessibility to light-based imaging. Results showed a strikingly superior sensitivity of the double-conjugated probes that allowed detection of molecules that may be expressed at very low levels, which occurs in many diseases. The imaging probes also detected activated immune cells, leading to unprecedented quantitative knowledge about immune response to disease.
By then, doctors are often limited to damage control. Now in the eye, and later in other areas of the body, early detection of molecular changes by fluorescent microspheres will save lives. It should certainly change people's expectations of when treatment is indicated.
Superior sensitivity of novel molecular imaging probe: simultaneously targeting two types of endothelial injury markers. The Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary has collaborated with the National Eye Institute to raise awareness on the importance of having comprehensive dilated eye exams. A comprehensive dilated eye exam is a painless procedure in which an eye care professional examines the eyes to look for common vision problems and serious eye diseases, many of which have no early warning signs. A study led by National Eye Institute has found that more than 11 million Americans have common vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia.
These problems can be detected through a comprehensive dilated eye exam and corrected with prescriptive eyewear such as eyeglasses and contact lenses.
Eye exams are also important in detecting complex eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease. Millions of Americans are affected by serious vision loss from complex eye diseases, therefore early detection and treatment is very important in reducing the risk of permanent vision loss. Eye and Ear offers routine annual eye and vision exams, prescriptions for eyeglasses and referrals for contact lens fittings and management of a variety of common eye problems such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.

Eye and Ear Food Services Director Nick Seremetis and Executive Chef Dino Licudine will join other chefs in creating and providing special dishes specifically prepared so that they are easy to eat for survivors of oral, head and neck cancers. The special meals will be enjoyed by patients at the North Shore Cancer Center.
One or more of these conditions can often be the side effect of interventions such as surgery or radiation, which are used to treat head and neck cancer," says Mass. Hatton coordinated the donation to the SPOHNC Taste Event and also coordinated the hospital's head and neck cancer awareness table, which will provide education and information about oral, head and neck cancer.
The laptop belonged to Dr. Robert Levine, a neurologist with a particular focus on ringing in the ears, or tinnitus. To date, Mass. Eye and Ear has determined that data owned by Mass.
