Blind woman gets sight
A woman who has been blind for the last 10 years got her sight back after doctors (and here I kid you not) "implanted a tooth in her eye as a base to hold a tiny plastic lens." Following the procedure (which was developed in Italy), surgeons took out the patient's canine or the appropriately named "eye tooth", the surrounding bone and drilled a hole into it to put in a special kind of lens. Isn't that cool?
