A new plastic nose has been discovered by a team of researchers at the National Geographic Society, with an exciting new potential use for it: as a mask for patients with cosmetic eye diseases.
The study is one of a number of projects exploring the potential for this new device to be used for other areas of medical care.
The nose, called a facemask, can be made of an adhesive-based material that is more flexible than other types of mask, allowing for easy cleaning.
This makes it a good candidate for use in areas like trauma care and other areas where plastic masks are often not effective.
The team used this device to test out the feasibility of a facemaker using an adhesive mask as a substitute for a conventional eye exam.
Researchers say the method could eventually help people with vision loss and other conditions with severe eye conditions, including retinitis pigmentosa, a genetic disorder in which light-sensitive cells are lost or damaged.
It also has the potential to help patients with glaucoma, which makes it difficult for people to see and process objects.
The researchers say their study is part of a larger project exploring how to create a new generation of flexible, self-cleaning mask.
In addition to using the adhesive material to create the facemasks, the team also worked with the University of Utah and the University, as well as several universities around the world.
The results are reported online today in the journal Science Advances.
The findings could potentially have applications for people with other eye diseases, such as macular degeneration.
The mask is made from a polymer that is made of a material that can be easily broken, and it is flexible enough to allow it to be worn by patients with different eye conditions.
The adhesive can also be removed by using a syringe, which is why the mask is designed to be a little bit flexible.
This could mean that, for example, a patient with macular damage might have the ability to use the mask to clean their eyes while they are on a face-lift.
The scientists said that the device is designed so that it can be worn for a period of up to eight hours before needing to be washed or disinfected.
The group is now working on more innovative ways to make the mask more flexible and more effective.
They are also exploring ways to create different versions of the mask based on skin type, skin texture and the size of the eye socket.
For now, the device can only be used to clean the eye, not the nose, because it is too sensitive.
“It is not very sensitive,” said lead author Rakesh Srivastava, a research scientist at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University at Buffalo.
“We have done a lot of research to try to design something that is not sensitive.”
