Researchers image single cell deaths in glaucoma patientsA new imaging technique can show the deaths of individual cells in people with glaucoma by labelling the cells with fluorescent dye, according to researchers. The approach might eventually be used to diagnosis the disease in its early stages or measure its progression.
