I love Science!

Researchers at the University of New South Wales have apparently cured blindness. They used patients who were blind in one eye, and took stem cells from their good eyes. These stem cells were put on a contact lens, and worn on the blind eye. In ten days, the damaged corneas were repaired and vision was restored. The results will have to be repeated and it may be years before this is a viable therapy, but this is fantastic news.
