This is incredible. I wonder if this just works on certain types of blindness, or on regular near & far-sighted vision? It would seem that it would be only for cases of blindness relating to the cornea, but I would be interested in reading more about this.

May God bless the efforts of adult stem cell researchers. This is truly an amazing article.

I wonder if it corrects simpler issues, like astigmitisms? In other words, bring your eyesight to 20/20?

This is fabulous! Future medical testing, absence of socialized medicine is the only way these types of discoveries can come to fruition. And to think that the stem cells were from the person themselves and not aborted babies! Fantastic!

A couple of years ago adult stem cells saved the eyes of my son. He was losing his vision due to long-term effects of a chemical burn. The stem cells were taken from healthier parts of one eye and transplanted into both eyes. After just a few days (maybe 4), his sight was near normal, better than before the surgery, and after a couple of weeks, his sight was normal. Now a couple of years later you would never guess he had ever been injured.
