China eye-gouge victim gets artificial eye

Sep 10 2013, 10:36am CDT | by IANS

Beijing, Sep 10 (IANS) A six-year-old boy whose eyes were gouged out in a recent attack received an artificial eye Tuesday in a transplant operation, Xinhua reported.

Beijing, Sep 10 — A six-year-old boy whose eyes were gouged out in a recent attack received an artificial eye Tuesday in a transplant operation, Xinhua reported.

Guo Bin underwent the surgery at C-MER Dennis Lam Eye Hospital in Shenzhen city of China's Guangdong province, which is run by Hong Kong doctor Dennis Lam.

An artificial eye was placed in the right eye socket of the boy, who was lured into a field by a woman Aug 24 in China's Shanxi province, where the woman gouged out the boy's eyes.

The suspect was later identified as the boy's aunt. She jumped into a well near her home and died Aug 30.

Doctors used autologous fat transfer on Guo's left eye instead of an artificial eye transplant because there was not enough tissue to support the eye and the area had a number of scars, according to Dennis Lam.

Scleral shells, a type of ocular prosthesis, are expected to be placed in four to six weeks to give the appearance of normal eyes, he said.

Dennis Lam was optimistic about the boy's recovery and said he could produce tears normally when he recovers.

The hospital will train the boy to use a sensory navigation tool by the end of this year, which he will be able to use to walk independently, according to the doctor.

The cost of the operation and future rehabilitation is about $50,000, which will be wholly exempted by the hospital.

C-MER (Shenzhen) Dennis Lam Eye Hospital, which opened March 21 this year, is the first solely Hong Kong-funded hospital in the Chinese mainland.

The boy's tragic experience has led to national concern. His family has received more than one million yuan ($162,085) in donations, according to media reports.

The Limits of American Power: A Letter to the Left

BIO-HO CHI MINH-COMMUNISM
When I was young, a mantra among progressives was that America had to stop operating as global policeman. Vietnam was the signal episode of arrogant and ultimately self-defeating American overreach. But there were plenty of other cases of the U.S. government doing the bidding of oil companies and banana barons, and blithely overthrowing left-democratic governments as well as outright communists (or driving nationalist reform ...

Jane Fonda has been alternately apologizing and making excuses for actions she participated in way back in the 1970s in Vietnam. Those actions, which include posing for propaganda photos atop a Communist North Vietnamese anti-aircraft emplacement used to shoot down American pilots and sitting in on forced interrogations of U.S. POWs who were being tortured, haven’t held Fonda back from enormous capitalist success as an actress, author and celebrity in the decades since. But it hasn’t made her an ...

Movie review: 'A Most Wanted Man'

Jul 27 2014 3:35pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Slipping in between the summer blockbusters comes Philip Seymour Hoffman's last full performance in "A Most Wanted Man," a very subtle, deliberate, and talky John LeCarre adaptation.  Hoffman plays German spymaster Gunther Bachmann, who runs a tiny off-the-books counter-espionage unit in Hamburg.  Bachmann plays a long, patient game in the War on Terror, breaking German law here and there in his efforts to slowly ...
