Adult Stem Cell patch restores vision

A man’s vision has been restored by a corneal patch grown from adult stem cells by a team at the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Eye Research Australia (CERA) and the Bernard O’Brien Institute of Microsurgery (BOBIM).

The patch, which replicates the cornea, was cultivated from a single stem cell from a donor eye and was transplanted to the surface of the man’s eyes.

The research team was led by Dr Mark Daniell (CERA) and Dr Erik Thompson (BOBIM).
