New Discovery for Retinal Regeneration in Human Eyes

Retinal degeneration is a common cause of loss of vision and it is estimated that by 2020 196 million persons worldwide will suffer from age related macular degeneration. Currently there is no cure though vision aids and other treatments help in reducing progression. Human retinas could be stimulated to regenerate naturally in diseases that cause retinal damage or in injury to the retina according to a team of scientists at Vanderbilt University. Their work is published in the journal Stem Cell Reports.
