But researchers are determined to change that and infuse new life for such unfortunate patients as well as people who are in the initial stages of this disease. Researchers at Northumbria University’s Northern Design centre in Gateshead, England and PolyPhotonix Ltd in Sedgefield, England have created a Sleep Mask prototype that corrects eye sight loss noninvasively using light-emitting diodes (OLEDs).
