    Doctors say Florida stem cell clinic left 3 women blind

    NEW YORK Three women were left nearly or totally blind by a vision treatment at a stem cell clinic, in what doctors call a dramatic illustration of how risky such clinics can be.

    It's amazing to me how Willy-bully some aspect s of the medical profession are when others are so well organized.
    They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.

    Each woman was injected in both eyes with a cell preparation derived from her own fat tissue.
    Maybe I'm dumb, but wouldn't you try one eye first?

    Why the hell did they do both eyes at the same time?

    That story is all kinds of fucked up on both the clinic and the patient side.

    As soon as they would say "both eyes at the same time"would give me a red flag to get out of dodge really quickly.

    Judging by the quote later in the article they have a pretty high success rate.

    I'm very surprised that they did both eyes at the same time. I've never heard of an eye doctor who would do that. I should know. I've been through a lot of eye procedures. I had cataracts surgery performed and that is never done to both eyes at the same time. It's standard practice to let one eye adapt first and see how things go. I can't imagine why this would be any different. I smell malpractice.
