Measure how much oxygen is consumed

Siegfried and Beebe say the next step is to extend their studies of patients and to explore the effects of increased oxygen content in animal models of glaucoma. They also plan to oxygen utilization in patients by modified contact modified contact lens on the eye, measure how much oxygen is consumed. It is not that older patients or African-American patients somehow always more oxygen to your eyes, said Siegfried . African-Americansng oxygen consumption oxygen consumption, so that higher amounts in the eye. Unlike African-Americans may have more efficient oxygen metabolism, with the same result. Excess oxygen in the formation of oxygen -products that lead cause cell damage. However, more research is needed the reason for the reason for increased oxygen and how it can damage the eye, we are in a better position to develop ways this disease, this disease, .
