Blind Man's Sight Restored!

This has got to be one of the most extraordinary miracles I've ever heard of! Please don't misunderstand my words like the whole American media did with Michelle Obama. I think it's clear what the most fascinating miracle is, if that's your belief.

Bob McNichol
, 57, from County Mayo in the west of the country, lost his sight in a freak accident when red-hot liquid aluminium exploded at a re-cycling business in November 2005. His eyesight has been restored after a procedure was done, by inserting his son's tooth in his eye! The technique was first done in Italy in the 1960's. Dr. Christopher Liu from the Sussex Eye Hospital in Brighton, England was the miracle worker in this story. The procedure used on McNichol involved his son Robert, 23, donating a tooth, its root and part of the jaw. McNichol's right eye socket was rebuilt, part of the tooth inserted and a lens inserted in a hole drilled in the tooth. The first operation lasted ten hours and the second five hours. Wow, talk about love for your father!
