New eye implant

gives gift of sight
to diabetes patients

Breakthrough: Implant surgery allows doctors
to correct blurred vision caused by diabetes

By Ellnbetll Vail Kersen
srArr weirtn

Sandra Sparkman, of Pippa Passes. Ky. was once un-
able to see the numbers on the oven dial. She was unable to
successfully look up names and numbers in the phone
book, and she could not enjoy watching TV because the

screen was blurry

“My vision was completely blurred."

said Sparkman.

who was diagnosed five years ago with Type II Diabetes.
Now. Sparkman is able to drive. watch TV and read 30
more letters on the eye chart used in a standard visual acu-

ity test without any problems.

The improvement is thanks to the Diabetic Eye Study.
conducted by the UK Department of Ophthalmology. Re.
searchers working with the study announced results that
offer hope to those suffering from blurry vision or blind-
ness, both side effects of diabetes. during a conference on


P. Andrew Pearson. an associate professor and chair-
person of the Department of Ophthalmology. and his col-
leagues at Envision TD have developed and been investi-
gating the safety and effectiveness of an ophthalmic im-
plant for the treatment of diabetic macular edema (DME).
DME is a condition that occurs when damaged blood ves-
sels in the eye leak and cause blurring of central vision.

“This is an ongoing study here at UK.“ Pearson said.
“Diabetes is very prevalent in Kentucky. and it is one of
the leading causes of blindness.“

The implant, which is 2.5 millimeters in diameter, is
surgically implanted in the back of the eye and stays for
the rest of the patient‘s life. The surgery takes about 30
minutes. and the patient is put under local anesthetic. The
implant is a drug reservoir that releases drugs and main-
tains consistent levels of drugs to the affected area of the
eye for 1.000 days. The implant. referred to as a pellet. is
not refillable and does not erode. It can be replaced by a
new implant if needed. The implant is patented and FDA


The study took 80 patients and randomized them to re-
ceive either a cur rent treatment or the drug implant The
80 patients were divided among six centers _ two in Ken-
tucky and four in other states After six months of treat-
ment. the patients were evaluated for changes in DME. The
results were that patients who had the implant showed a
statistically significant improvement in DME and the loss
of vision was less compared to those who received current

treatments, Pearson said.

Current treatments. including the use of lasers. only
slow the progression of the blindness from diabetes. The
implant would help to stop DME.

As a solution. an educa~

The first $3,800 will be

dent. These budgets are fund-
ed exclusively by state appro-

“We are getting the short
end of the stick,“ said
Charles McGrew, a LCC plan-
ning coordinator. “They‘re
(other Kentucky community
colleges) providing the same
thing we are.“

State funding per full-
time LCC student has de-
creased 12 percent in the last
four years. LCC receives 40
percent of its budget from
state appropriations. “We
just had our first tuition
raise in 12 years,“ McGrew
said. “More burdens are be-
ing placed on the students
because the state isn‘t com-
ing through with the funds."

Full-time tuition in-
creased from $978 to $1,123
per semester for in-state stu-
dents. LCC tuition is the
highest of any 2-year school
in Kentucky.

Funds are not the only
thing decreasing at LCC —
so is space. “Our common ar-
eas are just too small,” said
Rebecca Glasscock. a LCC ge-
ography professor. “In terms
of collegiality, people are just
crammed over each other. We
need another building.“

With 8,291 students en~
rolled this semester, the
school's facilities have
reached their capacity. adv
ministrators say.

“It‘s (the enrollment in-
crease has) put stress on our
current facilities. which are
only designed for approxi-
mately 4,000 students," Ker-
ley said. “Every classroom is
filled day and night, and
there is no room for students
to congregate."

Kerley said that more
students have been coming
to the school since it separat-
ed from other community
colleges as the lone institu-
tion associated with UK. The
other community colleges
formed the Kentucky Com-
munity and Technical Col-
lege System.

“Students from across
the state have flocked to LCC
because of our association
with UK." he said.

Compared to other Ken-
tucky community colleges.
LCC has the fewest square
feet per student, according to
statistics gathered by LCC
public relations. Community
colleges around the state av-
erage 6.7 square feet per stu-
dent while LCC has 4 square
feet per student.

“There is not a lot of
room here," said Ross Gam-
ble. a geography sophomore.
“It is really hard to get a
class into special facilities
like a computer lab.“

Kerley hopes the next
legislative session will appro-
priate money to repair the
leaking roof and possibly to
construct a new building at
LCC. “LCC has been desig-
nated as having the greatest
need for space of any institu-
tion in Kentucky,“ he said.

Despite the crunch on
money and space. the focus
remains on quality educa-
tion at LCC. Kerley said.



LCC students use computers in
Lee's overcrowded library 'liies-
day. Every computer was in use.

“You can tell there are more
people. Classes are full and
as a student. I like it.“ said
Bruce McDonald. a mechani-
cal engineering freshman.

In a survey of alumni
from all of Kentucky‘s col-
leges and universities. the
Council for Post Secondary
Education reported LCC as
having the highest satisfac—
tion rating of any institution
in the state.

“Our focus is on quality."
Kerley said. “Even though
we have tremendous growth
with no increase in funding.
the quality of education will
not slip."

To offset the pressure on
their current facilities. LCC
has opened a south campus
off Regency Road as well as
another building in Winches-
ter. Currently. 1.000 students
participate in distance learn-
ing programs in addition to
taking classes on campus.
Night classes have also
helped accommodate the en-
rollment growth. said Kerley

LCC is predicted to have
an enrollment of 10.000 or
more by 2006. Administra-
tors say the increasing
growth will not cause them
to close doors on those seek-
ing a college education.

“The Governor has said
that 80,000 more Kentuckians
should be in college by 2020.
We can‘t do that if we have to
close our doors.” Kerley said.
“There is a great need for
college education in Ken-
tucky. We cannot close our
