Dry Eye/Macular Degeneration/Retinoathies/Glaucoma
Many eye disorders have been successfully treated with stem cells. We are the first to report successful treatment of dry eye with stem cells. This patient had vision loss, severe swelling and pain that were completely reversed rapidly after simple intravenous stem cell infusion. For some disorders our expert ophthalmologist will inject the area around the eye, a so-called subtenon scleral injection, with stem cells. While stem cells can generally be safely injected into the eyeball itself, the homing instincts of stem cells allow us to inject the stem cells on the surface of the eye and thus avoid even the small risk that comes with intra-ocular injection.
