Blind man is hit by car, regains sight

Recommended Posts

Guy is kind of a dick, declining studies that could show how he regained his sight. He could help all kinds of people with sight issues if he allowed testing. I'm no humanitarian but if that was me, I'd help all I could.

Makes me wonder if he faked the blindness in the first place.

This sounds like a hoax to me, especially considering the only source is Lad Bible.

I think it originates at this Polish website, January 30th. Polish/Englsih:

https://www.polsatnews.pl/wiadomosc/2020-01-30/pan-janusz-odzyskal-wzrok-po-wypadku-podobnych-historii-jest-wiecej/

Then goes to to UK Mirror and elsewhere:

Hmmmm.  So, one Polish website.  Not a medical journal.  and picked up by the Daily Mirror.  Screams credibility.

But let's face it, even I as a nonmedico can think of some ways this could happen.  As said above, it's a very selfish person who wouldn't get this investigated properly.

If I just got my sight back I wouldn't want a bunch of quacks poking and prodding at me just to satisfy their curiosity and risk going blind again,I'd tell them to f off.

yep, as above, selfish.  Most of the testing procedures are noninvasive, and you have the right to refuse any you don't like.

Were you traumatised by a big bad doctor once?  Scared of needles too?  Antivaxxer?  It's all the same selfish principle, the needs of me outweighs you other worthless morons....

I'm surprised nobody had thought of this treatment plan before now.

This all depends on what sort of meaning there is to the word blind. We often think of it meaning no ability to detect light. There are all sorts of versions of blindness with a range of abilities.

Here is an older story

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/8579809/Man-regains-sight-in-eye-after-55-years.html

Quote

A man left blind in one eye after being hit by a stone as a child has regained sight after surgeons re-attached his retina in a ground-breaking operation, 55 years after the accident.

Or this

https://mysteriousfacts.com/blind-woman-regains-her-sight-after-getting-hit-on-the-head/

Quote

Lisa Reid from Auckland, New Zealand had become blind when she was 11 years old. She had lost her vision because of a tumor in her head that was pressing her optic nerve.

After 10 years, Lisa could see again and this miracle happened because of a small accident. When Lisa was 24 years old she bent down to kiss her dog Ami goodnight and banged her head on the coffee table.

These other cases have explanations.

I am wondering about the degree of blindness of the main in question. If it was not as severe as we all might at first guess then the recovery might not be as big as we might suppose it is.

If this is real, doesn't say much about the "doctors" who've been treating him. Of course, they obviously credit the drugs they were treating him with in order to save face. American doctor: "Seems you have pennies in your eyes sir. What we will do is remove them and it should restore your sight."......"Hey, how come my regular doctors didn't notice this?"

The medical industry is corrupt to the core and very nervous at this time.  Most in the the industry have no clue as to what they are a party to, but the hidden hand is altogether another tale.  If the truth were known they would —> All Of A Sudden <— have a very high rate of Unemployment — along with preachers, politicians, professors, pharmacists, psychiatrists, psychologists, propagandists, pope’s, and “players” of all kinds.

A blind Polish man made headlines recently after a car accident somehow helped him regain his sight.

Yeah, does seem a bit short-sighted of him . . . the blind leading the blind?

(I do humbly apologise).
