In a groundbreaking procedure last week specialists in the United States have succeeded in restoring a woman's sight by using tissue taken from one of her teeth to create a new cornea for her damaged eye.
A team of specialists at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine announced Wednesday that they are the first surgeons in the United States to restore a person's sight by using a tooth.
