Possible blindness cure with stem cell contact lenses? (#Blogathon)

Scientists have developed a potential breakthrough that may cure blindness in some people:

Of the three patients, two were legally blind but can now read the big letters on an eye chart, while the third, who could previously read the top few rows of the chart, is now able to pass the vision test for a driver’s license. The research team isn’t getting over excited, still remaining unsure as to whether the correction will remain stable, but the fact that the three test patients have been enjoying restored sight for the last 18 months is definitely encouraging. The simplicity and low cost of the technique also means that it could be carried out in poorer countries.

How cool is that? That’s very cool!

  1. Good morning!  That last bit would have been great for your dad if it had been developed sooner.  Looks like your day is almost done son.  Sleep tight—good job!
