• Watch This Blind Vet See His Family For The First Time In 20 Years

    Every so often I get to bring you an amazing story. This one is truly remarkable.

    Mark Cornell retired from the Air Force after serving 18 years. Lyme’s disease robbed him of his sight more than 20 years ago. However, today, he regained his vision and saw his family again for the first time in two decades.

    It’s not the miracle you might think. A brand new technology created by eSight made it all possible.

    When Cornell is wearing the electronic glasses, his sight is enhanced tremendously when the technology triggers an increased reaction from the cells in the eye. Cornell admitted to being “emotional,” obviously, when he first saw his wife smiling back at him.

    Cornell also admitted to being skeptical about whether the glasses would bring back his vision. But with his eyesight back, Cornell quickly thought of all the people who might one day be feeling the same way he does.

    ‘This could help tens of thousands, if not hundred of thousands of people, both veterans and civilian counterparts,” Cornell said.
