Britain - Stem Cells Restore Sight

This sounds like good news.

A woman who was blinded after she was attacked with acid has had her eyesight almost totally restored.

Deborah Catlyn thought she would never set eyes on her toddler daughter, Miracle, believing her vision might be permanently lost.

But revolutionary stem cell treatment has helped her regain 80 per cent of her vision and could hold the key for thousands of others. [...]

Doctors believe the stem cells they transplant into damaged eye somehow stimulated the patients' bodies to produce their own stem cells.
