Experts from the Department of Health and Human Services acknowledge that the number of Americans suffering from eye diseases, including those who might fear losing their sight, can be up to 80 percent of the general population.
According to the National Eye Institute (NEI), retinal and macular degeneration are the leading causes of loss of vision in the United States. They affect over 10 million Americans with 200,000 new cases of the disease being diagnosed each year. They can lead to light sensitivity, night blindness, tunnel vision, impaired or distorted vision, retinal detachment, or, in the worst cases, total eyesight loss.
Such eye problems, retinal or macular degeneration, for example, can be a result of aging but also of an illness or an injury. After the age of forty, a degree of cloudy or blurred vision becomes a reality for millions of people. For that reason, new approaches to degenerative eye diseases are being extensively explored.
Stem cell technology is a revolutionary new approach that seeks to promote non-surgical treatment of diseased, dysfunctional, or injured components of the eye. The technique is to use stem cells – the body’s raw materials – to generate new cells to replace damaged cells in components, or tissues, each of which has a specialized role in the eye.
Our GenLife internationally recognized expert, Dr. Charles F Mahl, acknowledges that new biological components for the eye are not easy to obtain. This is why regenerative medicine, as it is known, may be invaluable for renewing parts of the eye that are impaired. Put simply, stem cell therapy, in which we specialize, enables the repair of components that are not working properly. It can provide a way to replace damaged cells in the eye so that they can act as new healthy cells.
Retinal and Macular degeneration
Regenerative medicine, or stem cell therapy, although it is still new and innovative, has proven potential as a cellular treatment of retinal and macular degenerative conditions.
Deterioration of the retina (a layer of light-sensitive cells lining the back of the eye), for example, is the result of the progressive death of retinal cells. The most common causes of retinal degeneration include disease, diabetic retinopathy, and blood vessel occlusion. Our stem cell therapy in Miami can treat this condition.
Stem cells can also treat age-related macular degeneration (AMD) thanks to the ability to differentiate into multiple cell types, and an unlimited self-renewal capacity. These properties make stem cell therapy excellent potential treatment, not only for eye problems but also for various other diseases. Once the stem cells are deployed, the healing process starts. This technique repairs eye tissues in the same way that it does in other parts of the body damaged by disease or injury.
