Vision Restoration Becomes Druggable

Abstract

In this issue of Neuron, Tochitsky et al. (2016) have identified the mechanism by which small-molecule photoswitches enter and specifically activate retinal OFF-ganglion cells in degenerated retinas. This drug development is a tremendous step toward the treatment of blindness, regardless of the underlying mutation.
