Revolutionary technique restores the vision of two patients

Blur vision

A revolutionary medical technique that harnesses the power of stem cell therapy has restored the vision of two patients.

A man in his 80s and women in her 60s suffered from age-related macular degeneration - the most common form of blindness - and were unable to read even with glasses.

However, they regained their vision and could read normally after a team of British doctors inserted a patch of stem cells into their retinas.

The groundbreaking trial, conducted at Moorfields Eye Hospital, offers hope of a cure for the condition, which strikes 600,000 adults in the UK and less than two million in the US.
