One of the great joys of having children is introducing them to stories, especially ones that you know and love. There’s nothing like seeing them pick up a book and become mesmerized by the pictures, and to experience being drawn into another world. But if your child, or you, have a visual impairment, many of those stories may be out of reach.

The SAMi is a new device that lets parents monitor children with sleep issues while not having to be right in the room themselves. It’s an infrared device that is placed in the child’s bedroom and connected wirelessly to an iOS device, such as an iPod or iPhone. As the child sleeps, the SAMi records sounds and movements and sounds an alarm when unusual movement is detected. This lets the parent sleep knowing they will be alerted if and when they need to react to their child’s situation.

Cornea shown enlarged

A number of Boston hospitals and healthcare systems have teamed up to solve the puzzle of how to grow corneas good enough to replace those that no longer work. They had a breakthrough recently when they took something they learned from cancer research and applied it to their corneal work.

The result: corneas that can be grown using adult stem cells.

Wouldn’t it be great if all you had to do to cure your child’s blindness was to give them some medicine? Medicine they would just have to swallow. That’s what researchers are working on for people with Leber's Congenital Amaurosis (LCA), a congenital form of blindness.
