The miracles in medical field are always a case of jaw dropping for the non medical people. Here’s a builder who got his sight back through a tooth implant in his eye ! There’s no mistake in the sentence you just read, here’s the full story.
In the accident that burnt his eyes, Martin Jones suffered 37 per cent burns and had to wear a special body stocking for 23 hours a day. He also had his left eye removed. But surgeons were able to save the right eye, even though he was unable to see through it. At first specialists in Nottingham tried to save his sight using stem cells from a donor but the attempt failed.
Years later, a team of dexterous surgeons stepped in. They one of his teeth, implanted a tiny lens inside it, and then placed the tooth inside Martin’s remaining eye. They had to do it because his eye might have rejected a plastic implant, and the gory gamble paid off.
“I met my wife when I was blind and when I found out there was a chance I would get my sight back the first person I wanted to see was her. The doctors took the bandages off and it was like looking through water and then I saw this figure and it was her. She’s wonderful and lovely. It was unbelievable to see her for the first time” said Martin Jones after the miraculous surgery got him his sight back.
