Helping the Blind to See

This is fascinating.

There is a new type of surgery available for those who are suffering from corneal blindness. The process is two part, and involvees using the tissue from the patients cheek and a tooth along with some of the jawbone. The procedure is rather complicated, so go read about it here.
