    5:14 he makes his "but seriously.... blow me" face.

      Seems like this guy is constantly suppressing a creepy smile.

          You should talk about photoacoustic imaging. That will revolutionize diagnostic medicine

            I have Idiopathic Optic Neuritis, where I woke up one morning and boom, the vision in my right eye was around 75% gone (I was around 23 years old then). All specialists have said it's impossible to fix being the Optic Nerve which my immune system attacked. But this breathes hope with what he's saying...

                If you blow me it will cure your blindness.

                        Can genetic engineering fix my iris coloboma? If so, I will be the first to volunteer.

                                          This very likely won't be available in our lifetime due to the long term studies that will be required to make them available to the general public, which won't happen until long term studies are done in relation to specific diseases. With that said, this could be extremely promising for future generations if we're still around at that point.

                                            Within the last few months, I’ve lost much of my vision in my left eye due to swelling of my optic nerves. Was told that I will likely not ever get that vision back.

                                            What an awesome thought to be able to rejuvenate lost sight in someone’s eyes.

In the 1980s there was an issue of unteated blood being used at rural hospitals. So yes, while the #of total people with HIV is estimated to be 1.5 million, in China- they ALL happen to live in the same areas. So you have isolated communities, that no one is allowed into or out of that are these cesspools of the virus, and each new generation mutates the virus and makes the problem worse. Imagine ALL of Chicago being infected with HIV. When you look at America as a whole, sure it's not that bad. But for Chicago- everyone does and there's no hope...

I'm in ny late 20s with limited vision( legally blind cant drive anymore) and will be fully blind by my 30s. So this would be amazing to hopefully see a solution where at the moment there pretty much no solution/treatment for most these disorders.
