Ian Tibbetts was 27 when a piece of scrap metal hit him in the face, eventually leading to loss of vision in his left eye, and the loss of his right eye altogether.
In December of 2012, Tibbetts (now 43) underwent groundbreaking surgery called “Osteo-Odonto-Keratoprosthesis” which constructs a new eye using a plastic lens and one of Tibbetts’s own teeth. They drill a tiny hole into the tooth, insert the lens into the hole, and then insert the whole tooth into the eye socket. If the retina is still functioning, the patient can see through the tooth-lens window– and the body will never reject it, since the tooth belonged to the patient in the first place.

Re: A man who has tooth in his eye!
His teeth is going to go rotten. Itachi is overusing Tsukuyomi. Why can't Lelouch use his Code Geass with his left eye? Godzilla is winking. Too many eye-drops, I had to switch my formula to cream (If you know what I mean). The stripper wasn't a female......
Each reunion is a twist. The joy is ephemeral; it leaves fear. A fear that all too soon the time will come when we must bid farewell again. Yet we cannot help but long for the next encounter. Humanity's great frailty...We prefer past happiness.
Maybe this was too boring for opening new thread... I am sorry if that is the case.

We have the power to do sth like this ( OK, you may say that is nothing special, but for that man who couldn't see, who was in dark for more than a decade this is the only thing he wanted. ) and on the other hand, yeah, we have power to be cruel and sick, like you've said.
And that is why I don't understand... how can you say just make such statement and how can you just stay indifferent while saying these sentences?
