Celebrities Utilizing Psychics In All Aspects Of Their Lives

22% of Americans have consulted a psychic or medium, according to You Gov. While they might not be overly popular with the general public, there’s one group of individuals that turn to psychics in their droves: celebrities. George Clooney, Khloe Kardashian, Brad Pitt and Jenny McCarthy are just a few famous faces who have confessed to seeing a psychic. But just how do celebrities benefit from psychics in a way that others don’t?

Contact Lens Enables Transplant

A new procedure to help people with damaged corneas is showing promise in three patients so far. A team from the University of New South Wales in Sydney takes stem cells from the patient’s good eye and cultures them in a contact lens. When the cells have multiplied, they place the lens over the patient’s affected eye and leave it for around three weeks. During that time, the cells begin to grow into the damaged cornea and help regenerate it. In effect, it’s a stem cell transplant from one eye to the other.

Researcher Dr Nick Di Girolamo said: ‘The procedure is totally simple and cheap.

‘Unlike other techniques, it requires no foreign human or animal products, only the patient’s own serum, and is completely non-invasive.

‘There’s no suturing, there is no major operation. You don’t need any fancy equipment.’

The contact lenses used in the operation are already widely used after eye surgery.

The researchers hope the technique can be adapted for other parts of the eye, such as the retina, and even elsewhere in the body.
