The American Institute for the Prevention of Blindness and Professor Bath travel to Tunisia to lecture and teach ophthalmic surgeons the methodology and science of keratoprosthesis. Two women who had been blind for apporximately 30 years regained the equivalent of 20/20 vision after the surgery. One of the patients had Trachoma and the other patient has Pemphigus, both diseases resulted in severe corneal and conjuntival scarring. Expressions of joy and applause erupt with removal of eye bandages one woman sees her son who is now 30 years older. Dr. Bath is credited with performing the first Keratoprosthesis surgery in the history of Tunisia. This historic video was filmed live circa 1994.
