    For someone to be able to regain the ability to see or even read would seem almost like a miracle. I got some chemicals in my eyes when I was twenty years old and couldn't see for almost a month. Not being able to see is a very scarry thing. I hope this new procedure works out well.

    Once again I admit a lack of knowledge to the personal feelings associated with eye problems, but my father grew up on a farm in Illinois. This in and of itself means nothing, but a nitrogen bottle (used for fertizer) once blew up in his face. This not only knocked a chunk out of one of his front teeth, but also blinded him (totally) for some time. The doctors at the time told him and my grandparents that he would never see again. However, his sight was restored; be it natural or miracle - and I am thankful for this.

    Regardless of your regilion, beliefs etc, I pray for any of you whose sight is anything less than perfect.

    Your right Detox, I guess we all sometimes take being able bodied and having all senses for granted, the world can be an unforgiving and insensitive place sometimes, its good to take time and remember those who aren't as fortunate and provide help and assistance where we can.
