This research looks much preliminary to any application but it's interesting.

...could transform human embryonic retinal stem cells into neurons that would be transplanted into patients to treat retinal degenerations...
Will this be tried on adult stem cells first, or must we engage in organ harvesting from those who have not yet had a chance to use their eyes? 'embryonic retinal stem cells' would be specific to developed eyes, not the stock of generic embryonic stem cells that have already been harvested for 'research'.

You can keep the eye cells stolen from murdered babies. I would rather be blind.
