A product called Holoclar is another breakthrough innovation this century that can correct what was previously thought to be an irreversible medical condition. Those people who have suffered from ocular injuries such as physical or chemical burns will be able to receive restorative contact lenses that will help them to see once more.
Whether acids or solvents caused the blindness, this Chiesi product can still enable the person to see. The procedure involves extracting stem cells from healthy tissue in the cornea, and using the biopsy to form a living tissue lens. Holoclar can be worn in a similar manner to the standard optical accessories, but it has the power to offer sight to even the severely visually impaired.
