Simulating decreased visual acuity with a contact lens system

, : Simulating decreased visual acuity with a contact lens system. American Journal of Ophthalmology 92(6): 863-864

A soft contact lens with a central depression was used into which a hard contact lens can be fitted to simulate conditions that cause decreased [human] visual acuity. This piggyback system can simulate central scotoma, various peripheral field defects, and opacities of the media.

A novel regulatory mechanism for control of the ubiquitous 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase complex (ODH), a key enzyme of the tricarboxylic acid cycle, was discovered in the actinomycete Corynebacterium glutamicum, a close relative of important human...
