  1. Gene therapy: This involves delivering healthy genes to replace faulty ones that cause inherited retinal diseases.
  2. Stem cell therapy: This involves the use of stem cells to repair damaged tissues in the eye, such as those affected by age-related macular degeneration and retinitis pigmentosa.
  3. Drug delivery implants: These are tiny devices implanted in the eye to slowly release medication for extended periods, helping to treat conditions such as diabetic retinopathy and macular edema.
  4. Virtual reality therapy: This involves using virtual reality technology to help patients with lazy eye (amblyopia) to improve their visual acuity.
  5. Retinal prostheses: These are devices that can restore some degree of vision to patients with advanced retinal degeneration.
  6. Light therapy: This involves the use of light to treat conditions such as seasonal affective disorder, sleep disorders, and non-seasonal depression that can impact eye health.

Overall, these novel treatment options provide new hope for patients with various eye diseases, offering potential relief and improved quality of life.
