They eyes have it!

In this Boston Herald story, They eyes have it!, we learn about how a man’s vision was restored.

At the Boston Foundation for Sight, doctors created special lenses to protect Nelson’s cornea. The Boston Scleral Lens, invented by Rosenthal, rests on the white of the eye and arches over the cornea, creating a pocket filled with artificial tears. The device cured Nelson’s pain and improved his vision from 20/200 in one eye and 20/400 in the other, to 20/20 and 20/15.

What is cool is that my good friend, Alan Kwok, fitted Nelson with the lenses.

And today Nelson and his fiancee, Bell, got married at the Boston Foundation for Sight and Alan held the ring at the wedding. That Alan is a special guy. No wonder Nelson was quoted as saying

These people are doing God’s work.
