WARNING: mildly disturbing image
http://uk.news.yahoo.com/5/20090919/tod-granny-s-sight-restored-with-tooth-i-870a197.html

A formerly blind grandmother has regained her sight after surgeons implanted a tooth in her eye.

American granny Sharron Thornton, 60, was blind for nine years after contracting Stevens-Johnsons syndrome, a rare disease that scarred her cornea.

But doctors in Miami, Florida, made history after extracting her canine and drilling an optical cylinder lens into it.

Ms Thornton is the first person ever to have her "eye tooth" taken out, reshaped and inserted in this type of surgery.


I think that pretty scary and i've never, ever heard of this being done before.
I wonder if she can wear glasses now.

Also, obligatory joke...
Man: ''Excuse me have you got the time?''
Lady mentioned above: '' Why yes, it's tooth thirty''
fail

I bet that surgery cost her an arm and a leg.


And a tooth.

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

Don't dress as a whore, he'll thump you.

I'm a firework, primed to go off

Umm.. Does anyone understand why it had to be her tooth? Surely they could have just made the lense thing?

DON'T MAKE ME DESTROY YOU!

The grandmother is having a baby with her grandson, so the grandson will be his own fathers father, the baby will be his own grandfather, and grandson, and the grandmother will be the mother, and great grandmother?

That's pretty much what I wanna know. Why didn't they just make a glass ball the size of an eye, colour it like an eye, and put the camera in it? It'd look a lot less freaky.

I know. They couldn't just make an artificial lense for her?

But maybe it has something do with the body being able to accept something that has her DNA all over it and being able to insert in her eye without it rejecting it. But still that is gross

Yeah, i maned up and checked it out. Creepy is a good word to use.

The article made a small mention about a bonding between the skin and tooth. Maybe its a property of the tooth's make-up that allows this particular bond.

Well you know what they say

"An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth"

This lady has obviously done the opposite
