Blind woman regains sight with tooth for an eye

 

The procedure had been efficiently conducted in the U. S. before. However, it’s still amazing that a tooth inserted in the eye can recover vision to sightless individuals. The surgery treatment is not being conducted Stateside, and a 60 season old lady known as Sharon Thornton was the first to get it.

Sharon Thornton missed her vision over nine decades ago and after going through the procedure of osteo-odonto-keratoprosethesis she can now see. A rare condition that destroys cells on the eye's surface left Sharron 'Kay' Thornton blind for nearly a decade. What physicians did was draw out one of Mrs. Thornton’s canine tooth and cut off the top. Next the physicians eliminated the dental mucous tissue layer from within her face and grafted it to her remaining eye.

Earlier this month, doctors used a tooth and part of the lining from her cheek to create a 'window' that allows light into the eye.

Thornton who was blind for nine years underwent a first of its kind procedure, known as modified osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis (MOOKP), at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.




The procedure implants one of her teeth in her eye, as a base to hold a prosthetic lens.

Thornton was blinded in 2000 by a reaction to a drug she was taking, which damaged her cornea.

"I`m looking forward to seeing my seven youngest grandchildren for the first time," said Thornton.

"We take sight for granted, not realizing that it can be lost at any moment," she said.
