engineering careers  First UK patient receives stem cell treatment to cure blindness

A patient has become the first in the UK to receive an experimental stem cell treatment that has the potential to save the sight of hundreds of thousands of Britons. By December, doctors will know whether the woman, who has age-related macular degeneration, has regained her sight after a successful operation at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London last month. Over the next 18 months, 10 patients will undergo the treatment.
