An eye for
an eye a tooth and tooth for a tooth an eye… See this article in the Telegraph:
The procedure began when one of Mr Jones’ canine teeth was removed and converted into a holder for a special optical lens by drilling a hole in it.
The tooth was then inserted into his cheek for three months to enable it to grow new tissue and blood vessels.
Then finally came the delicate operation to insert the tooth, complete with the fitted lens into Mr Jones’ right eyeball.
Within two weeks of the final operation to implant the tooth in his eyeball his sight returned and he was told he had almost perfect vision in his right eye.
Do you ever wake up and think that life is just getting weird?

Something about that is so primal and wrong. Shudder.
Transhumanism: happening whether you like it or not.
Yep. That freaked me out, but I'm so glad it worked.
Definitely weird. I wish they had more details in that article. They mention they saved his right eye even tho he couldn't see through it.
I went to the dentist this morning (ugh) and I told him about this article. He looked at me like I had maybe taken something more than the topical he had given me.
As someone pointed out elsewhere: gives a whole new meaning to 'eyetooth'…
Wow, that is utterly amazing. I can not see out of my right eye, I was born that way. I consider myself very fortunate that I have sight in one eye but I always wondered what it would be like to see out of both eyes. I never thought it would be possible but maybe someday…
I think it's extremely cool. :]
