I only have eyes for you
Never underestimate the power of a little temporary joy:
BLIND Andrew Hall stunned his bride when he SAW her walk up the aisle and stand with him at the altar thanks to special vision-enhancing drugs.
Andrew had not seen girlfriend Carolyn, 25, properly for years but thanks to the medication, he achieved the seemingly impossible.
However the drug is so strong it can only be taken for a short time because of side effects and the sight benefits do not last.
Andrew has just six per cent sight thanks to Retinitis Pigmentosa.
Some things, of course, are worth mere side effects.
[I]f you were [to] lose your sight, but could have it restored, what was one thing you would want to be able to see again?
Someone other than me in the hallway mirror, I think. Beyond that, I'm not really sure.Posted at 6:14 AM to Entirely Too Cool
