    because of macular degeneration.

    While perhaps such a treatment will be less than effective on a 97 1/2 year-old it would be nice to hope.

      not clear from the announcement how restorative this might be. I doubt anyone knows yet, it's not even real well knowjn if it will work or not or what the complications might be. But the most exciting thing about regenerative medicine is that it regenerates. So there's a real chance this or something like it could restore your grandmother's sight to a crisp 20/20.
