Sight Saving Stem Cell Treatment

A REVOLUTIONARY treatment saved the sight of nursery nurse Sarah Mansini just when she thought she was going blind. Eye specialists originally told the 29-year-old there was nothing they could do to save her sight.

However, Mr Sheraz Daya and workers at the Blond McIndoe research centre in East Grinstead, West Sussex, stunned the world of eye surgery by cultivating “sheets” of human stem cells in his laboratory and transplanting these to patients, restoring their sight.
