The eye is the most important sensory organ in humans. Many of the conventional treatments are ineffective for certain ocular disorders. For example, there’s no cure for the age-related macular degeneration (AMD). It is estimated that over 300 genes have been implicated in retinal degenerations. There is no way to regulate that many genes to correct ADM. The earlier management methods for AMD were cumbersome and not much effective; the advanced methods such as, gene therapy, artificial retina involving genetic engineering technology, using optical or laser switches to excite neurons (optogenetics) and advanced biological techniques such as transplanting stem cells has better scope for management of macular degeneration. Stem cells can act as a source of new, healthy specialized cells and may provide a way to replace damaged cells in the eye. Therefore researchers are now using stem cell technology to explore possible new approaches to treatments for loss of vision.
