With stem cell therapy for eye disease being the current trendy news topic, many people are eager to jump the gun and rush into trying it. These therapies are currently being researched and have not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration to be safe and effective. Since there are no stem cell therapies approved for eye disease you should not go to any clinic that offers such therapies. You should contact your ophthalmologist and see about enrolling in a clinical trial. You should also be aware that health insurance does not cover unapproved treatments. So don't waste your time and money, and most importantly risk the possibility of losing your vision by trying unsafe and unapproved treatments. Always consult your eye care professional about any potential eye disease therapies.
