Stem Cell Contact Lenses Cure Blindness in Less Than a Month

In a world-first breakthrough, University of New South Wales (UNSW) medical researchers have used stem cells cultured on a simple contact lens to restore sight to sufferers of blinding corneal disease.

Sight was significantly improved within weeks of the procedure, which is simple, inexpensive and requires a minimal hospital stay.

The story is too old to be commented.

Yeah, Stem cells are pretty awesome. Going to be great once adult stem cell use becomes viable and mainstream. A lot of peoples problems could be fixed with little effort.

This isn't fetal stem cells. That's what anti-stem cell people are against. Using dead fetus's for stem cells. And their against that because their against abortion. And their against abortion because instead of taking a smart scientific view of the situation, they take a religious/spiritual view.

It's all ridiculous, and those people need to stop sticking their personal beliefs into real science.
