keep your fingers crossed!  They are working on stem cell research at the moment.  It's going into to phase 2 of the research where they are going to try it out on 12 patients but there is still a lot of clinical testing to be done.  So maybe in a few years there will be a cure.  I have heard of a Dr. Nolan in Farmington, Ct.  He uses drops to help patients with Stargardt's disease.  I just recently contacted the office for more info because I myself have it and I've been trying to find out what is out there for treatment.  Check out his link  http://www.nolaneye.com/  I have also heard of microcurrent stimulation treatment so they are definitely trying to come up with something.  I'm 30 years old and was diagnosed when I was 8.  It took them two years to figure out what was wrong with me.  I know that someday soon they will find a cure and I can't wait.  I have much faith in the medical world.
