Weird But True Video: Tooth in the Eye Repairs Sight

From Denny: Now if this isn't the "strange but true" category!
CNN's Elizabeth Cohen reports on an unusual procedure that helps restore vision to the blind. Apparently, there is something about the tissue in the tooth that is compatible with this unusual procedure and helps restore sight to those who experience cornea damage. It doesn't help other types of blindness though. You have to watch this video to believe it; the diagram of how the tooth fits into the eye helps it all make more sense.
