Q&A: Will stem cell treatment help for Dry Eye Syndrome?
posted on 3/20/2014
Ask A Doctor Question:
My wife suffers from dry eye syndrome. We have tried just about everything (apart from glandular transplants). One specialist has diagnosed Sjögrens but there are no accompanying symptoms of rhuematism or dry throat, etc. There is simply an ever-worsening degeneration of the lagrimal glands. Would stem cell treatment offer any hope? The situation is now critical and my wife is forced to wear chambered, dark humidity googles permanently. Many Thanks- Simon
