DOB: April, 1932
Residence: Seattle, Washington
Disease treated: Dry and Wet Macular Degeneration
I was born on April 13, 1932 and have lived in the Western United States all of my life. After my retirement in 1992 I became a tax preparer and still continue to usher part-time at the Benaroya Hall where the Seattle Symphony performs.
Before Stem Cell Therapy
For many years my eyesight gradually deteriorated and in 2006 my sight became too bad to be employed as a tax preparer. I continued to work as an usher, reading tickets with visual aids until December 2009. My symptoms became pronounced and I was not able to see the curb, cracks in the sidewalk, street signs, using sharp knives, watch sporting events, drive, etc.
At the Clinic
We received professional care from all involved in the process. The clinic was very clean, the doctor was very efficient in caring for the five of us that were there in January 2010. The weather was very cold but the people in the clinic were friendly and helpful.
After Stem Cell Therapy
My eyesight has improved from 20/400 to 20/150 in my left eye and from 20/80 to 20/70 in my right, as measured by my ophthalmologist in Seattle.
I can now see a sign from our window (we live on the 20th floor of a condominium) that is 1 mile away that I have not seen for at least six years, I can walk by myself safely down the sidewalk and read signs, I can read with good lighting and have returned to ushering as I can again read the tickets. My eyesight still does not allow me to drive.
Recommending Stem Cell Therapy to Others
I am willing to share my experience and I tell everyone it is a personal decision that one must make. I freely give the web site address to anyone interested.
