The UK’s Daily Mail (12/23) reported that, according to UK eye expert Sheraz Daya, “more patients who have been left blind after damage to their corneas could be helped with artificial eye implants.” Daya “has called for patients whose sight has not improved through either transplants or stem cell treatment to be made eligible for the procedure,” called keratoprosthesis, through the NHS. “New breakthroughs in the treatment, including better use of antibiotics to treat infection in the eye, has made it a better option for hundreds more patients, experts believe.”
