Story about a corneal surgery to save a baby’s sight

Melissa from Children’s Hospital Boston’s pediatric blog, Thrive, wrote about a baby undergoing a new surgical procedure, called keratoprosthesis to replace her damaged cornea with an artificial one.  It’s an interesting story with a hopeful ending.  I have to say, writing this blog has given me a new appreciation for vision, and how fragile it can be, and some of the amazing advances in medicine.  I feel like I’m forever learning more and more (that’s a good thing).
