Technological advancements have allowed researches from Frauhofer Institute in Germany to produce an aesthetic cornea that may give hope to the blind. The Cornea is carefully layered with a special protein that latches to the natural cornea after implantation.

These sight-saving implants have been tested in the Regensburg University Hospital Laboratory using rabbits' eyes. Successful results yield the proposition to grant human use sometime in 2008.

Implications - Many people await anxiously for new technology to emerge in the health department since so many diseases and health issues are still not curable. Businesses that focus on the health of individuals will win the respect out of compassionate people. A happy and healthy life is always in style.
