The Science behind Stem Cell Therapy for Eye Diseases

Stem Cells are human cells capable of differentiating to any human cell, including those of the human eye.

Since the first successful culturing of Human Embryonic Stem Cells in 1998, science has been using them to develop ways to restore normal eye functions in various diseases. The use of new generation of stem cells, iPSC, finally pushes this technology into clinical benefit. This, as Initial Clinical trials of stem cells treatments for Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) in USA already show promising results, including the restoration of vision. 


The Regenerative Healing Role of Stem Cells in the Eye
Stem Cells could be used to replace non-functioning cells of the eye with functioning eye cells originated from stem cells, thus achieving a regenerative healing effect.

The Trophic Healing Role of Stem Cells in the Eye

Stem Cell implants in the eye produce growth factors supporting the eye, thus achieving a trophic healing effect. In BPIH, Nerve Growth Factor, a neuroprotective, neurotrophic and nerve regeneration agent, are also being delivered directly to the eye. The first US-Approved Nerve Growth Factor received its FDA approval in 2018 for eye disease.

Traditional Chinese Medicine - Treating You as a Whole:

The ancient wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) techniques, such as acupuncture, massage and herbal medications, will be combined with Stem Cell Therapy to enhance the regeneration of the optic nerves. According to our data, our Hospital’s prominent approach of combining the two resulted in impressive recovery times in patients treated for chronic eye diseases.
