Is It Possible to Use Stem Cell Treatment for Eyes to Restore Vision?

The cornea is a transparent structure at the front of the eye and is mainly responsible for focusing of incoming light rays on the retina for clear vision. The health of cornea is maintained by stem cells present at the junction of cornea and sclera (the white part of the eye) called as limbus.

Possible Future of Cataract Surgery – Regenerated Natural Lens

Cataract is one of the most common causes of significant visual loss worldwide. The treatment of cataract is removal of cataract surgically and implantation of an artificial lens to replace the cataractous lens. These lenses are called intraocular lens (IOL) and are either rigid or foldable depending on the size of the incision through which cataract is removed and the technique used for the surgery. The intraocular lens helps the patient see clearly after cataract [...]
