Stem Cell Treatment Successfully Restores Sight | IFLScience. I wish they would try to inject stem cells into damaged optic nerves. Though, I'm not sure how intolerant the optic nerve would be to foreign antigens. Since it is legal to use embryonic stem cells now, people are getting their eye sight back.
Optic nerve fibres. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of axons from the optic nerve. Connective tissue fibres (thread-like) are also visible. The optic nerve visual information from the retina in the eye to the brain. Magnification: x2000 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.

✿⊱╮Retina close up cross section | The retina is the innermost layer of the eye and is composed of several layers of neurons interconnected by synapses. The only neurons that are directly sensitive to light are the photoreceptor cells, rods and cones. Light energy creates an image of the visual world on the retina, triggering nerve impulses that are sent to the visual centers of the brain through the optic nerve.
