Triple-take headline

I read the headline three times, checked the URL, and re-read this story before believing it.

I feel cheated that they didn't include a photo. Funny coincidence was the pop-up ad for tooth whitener. Nice.

OK... the story is... well, dumbfounding. Next, enter "Osteo-Odonto-Keratoprosthesis" into Google and on the 2nd link you should see a link that does not link to a PDF... click it and you will see a picture of what the rebuilt eyesocket looks like. HOLY FREAKING SMOKES! What a thing to see through...

So, does he have to brush that tooth, too? What about flossing?

Too weird, but since it works, very cool, too.

Okay... I'm still re-re-rereading it.

Fascinating....

It is truly remarkable where we have gone in some areas of medical science, and just how far behind we are in other areas...
As someone who went from only seeing colored blobs without glasses to 20/20 vision, I have a deep appreciation for the gift of sight. I can't imagine how wonderful this man must feel..

don't know why it didn't occur to me sooner, but I guess it is possible to literally give one's eye teeth after all.

I know modern medicine seems miraculous..I have had both of my eyes repaired..cataracts and old lens removed and new ones implanted. I was
blind before..had to have glasses on even to see to shave and now only need them to read...

I hope that the article is in fact a fact. It might give some hope to some who may never see otherwise..

Phlegmy, it occured to me that somebody managed to find a shorcut between giving an eye-for-an-eye and giving a tooth-for-a-tooth.

Wow, Thanks for the tip on looking up the photos on google images, anonymous. Nothing thrills me like an enabler who fuels my morbid curiosity. They were in simultaneously grosser and tamer than I expected, if that's possible. (I didn't expect the egg-whites to be pink.)

matt - A tooth-for-an-eye sounds like a wonderful saying, even if the donor/recipient arrangement changes somewhat in translation.
