Stem cell

Good evening.
Does anyone know about whether stem cell is effective for treating optic neurosis. I have only one good eye but having ms diagnosed nearly 2 years ago my vision still remains blurred some days worse than others. My ms consultant says there isn’t any treatment but my worry is over time it may get worse then I’m really in trouble.
Thanks in advance
Hilary

@hilaryk0757 , stem Cell Treatment is still in its early days. Its prime role is to eliminate further MS activity. Your Stem Cells are reintroduced to help the regeneration of your immune system. Recovery of affected function is seen as a bonus.

Should we worry about our symptoms getting worse? Well, we know what we are up against and we know what we should and shouldn’t do. And one thing we definitely shouldn’t do is worry about the future.

As we constantly say, no-one knows what’s around the corner and we are no different.

Carpe diem………..

It just seems very strange that one of the main problems ms causes is eye problems
Yet there isn’t anything to help the situation.

One of my eyes became blurred when I was diagnosed 30 years ago and it hasn’t changed since then. I was put on a 3 yr driving licence and after the 3yrs was up I had a medical and got put on a full licence again as they said my other eye was good enough and made up for the other one.

@hilaryk0757 , everything about MS is very strange.

@guinness , I did Latin “O” level (predates GCSE) – I failed miserably!

That has made me feel a whole lot better.
Knowing that I don’t have the luck on depending on my other eye as it is practically useless. What I’m trying to do is preserve what sight I have left. But I also have to put up with floaters with blurriness it’s not much fun

@ stumbler I was taught by nuns so latin was a must, the Bruises across my knuckles from the Ruler proved I’d more chance of becoming the Pope

The ‘floaters’ in my good eye used to be annoying as I kept looking around for flies but its another thing to get used to and after a while you can put the fly spray down . I turn my head to look at something and then a ‘floater’ catches up so it looks like something is flying past.
