The link below talks of breakthrough developments in stem cells for damaged corneas
Here is a quote from the article,

"The procedure pioneered by Indian researchers involves the removal of adult stem cells from the limbic region of the patientís own eyes. These stem cells are then used to reconstruct damage regions, including the retina and the cornea."

This News on Stem Cells only came out yesterday in the UK (a must read !)....please note they say the following in the article "surgeons believe the risks involved are far lower than in a traditional cornea transplant."

So what about the flashing neon signs on other sites which advertise that corneal transplants are 95% successful ?!?!?

Sajeev, very, very good job!!!!! This article is really interesting. However, I think that her sight is not very good, but good enough to drive.

I think there are a few points to consider here

The Cells were implanted for the regeneratin process as opposed to what a Corneal Transplant woud achieve.......

Secondly, the woman in question who was interviewed must have 6/12 or 6/9 vision as she was driving..to me thats a huge success as a month earlier she was totolly blind!
