Repairing optic nerve?

In a recent study, Stanford scientists were able to coax cells in damaged optic nerve to re-grow towards the brain, 200 out of 50,000 damaged cells (here). It was a combination of gene therapy and high-contrast visual stimulation.

Application to glaucomatous humans? A long shot at best.
