Vision for the blind!

Your fantastic last page news and sketch published on 7th February based on AFP, Washington, is indeed an eye-opener! This electro-medical breakthrough has opened a new horizon for the blind. Now the rich, if blind, can buy sight! It is the first 'bionic eye' to go the market!

Europe has taken the lead; and it is already available there, if the price of over 76,000 euro can be given! In US, the Food and Drug Administration will soon approve it. It can well be the most exciting medical news of the year. I am sure WHO and other international bodies will recognise the scientists and experts involved in this epoch-making discovery.
