SC treatment may Restore Vision

Researchers working as part of the University of Georgia’s Regenerative Bioscience Center have developed a new way to identify and sort #stem cells that may one day allow clinicians to restore vision to people with damaged corneas using the patient’s own eye tissue. They published their findings in Biophysical Journal.

The #cornea is a transparent layer of tissue covering the front of the eye, and its health is maintained by a group of cells called limbal stem cells. But when these cells are damaged by trauma or disease, the cornea loses its ability to self-repair.
