Stem Cell Treatment for Eyes

What is stem cell therapy?

They are cells that can transform into other body cells, such as muscle, brain, or retina, which detect light signals to transmit the images we see. In addition, stem cells have the ability to repair or replace damaged cells or tissues as a treatment for eye diseases that cause blindness, or that limit the patient´s vision.

Stem cell therapy for eye diseases

Stem cells can be used to treat eye diseases such as hereditary retinal diseases (IRD), age-related macular degeneration (AMD), among others.The main objective of stem cell therapy is to restore retinal cells health and function, so that healthy cells are preserved and tissues and damaged cells are regenerated in order to stop the damage caused by eye diseases and improve the patient’s ability to see.

Stem cell therapy in ophthalmological diseases

The eyes are organs that undergo many changes with age, especially in people who are affected by chronic eye diseases for whom there are not many solutions by traditional medicine. Stem cell therapy in eyes is a hope to stimulate new cellular tissue growth in order to regenerate dead or injured tissue. At ProgenCell we are specialists in stem cell treatment for diseases that affect the eyes. Schedule your appointment and improve your vision.

Common eye diseases

  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Dry Eye Optic neuritis
  • Optic Atrophy• Macular degeneration
  • Retinal degeneration
  • Retinitis pigmentosa
  • Diabetic retinopathy

Can they cure eye diseases?

The eye is a small but very complex organ, whose function is to detect the light that is in its environment to transfer information to the brain, which transforms it into images. The components or tissues that make up the eye contain many types of cells, with specific jobs to perform specialized functions.Eye disorders or diseases occur when one or more eye components (retina, cornea, pigment epithelium, lens, optic nerves) become damaged or stop working properly. Part of the difficulty of treating these conditions lies in their complexity, however, stem cells can be programmed to replace damaged cells in the eye in order to regenerate them, stop the disease´s progression and recover part of the lost vision.

What is the procedure?

Stem cell therapy for eye diseases consists, broadly speaking, in obtaining stem cells, their subsequent transformation into retina cells and finally they are injected into a special area that is located just behind the patient’s eye, so that they can travel to the eye area that is damaged in order to regenerate tissues.

Allogeneic therapy

It consists of the use of stem cells from other sources such as umbilical cord cells, for the treatment of some corneal diseases types.In those patients where for some medical reason it is not possible to use their bone marrow stem cells, other sources of stem cells are used as a second option, such as stem cells from umbilical cord or adipose tissue to replace damaged cells and help self-repair in cells that require it. At ProgenCell you will find stem cell treatment for diseases that affect the eyes. Schedule your assessment appointment and check the regenerative therapy benefits.

Autologous therapy

It consists of the use of stem cells from the patient himself, which are aspirated from the bone marrow.

Although stem cells can be obtained from different sources, such as: bone marrow, umbilical cord blood, adipose tissue and even teeth, we prefer to use fresh, autologous bone marrow; as it contains many stimulating factors and growth factors. As research studies advance and more beneficial qualities for regenerating and repairing tissue are discovered, we are becoming more and more convinced of its potential for anti-aging, prevention and for treating a wide variety of degenerative conditions. That is why we want to bring the benefits of stem cells to all those patients with a medical condition, even when traditional treatments have had little or no results.
