Repair damaged eyes with stem cell discsdamaged eyesstem cellstem cellsUniversity of Sheffield

Using a combination of techniques known as microstereolithography and electrospinning, the researchers made a disc of biodegradable material that can be fixed over the cornea. The disc is loaded with stem cells that multiply, allowing the body to heal the eye naturally.
