    • And result, the redness has been cast away from the article, I photoshoped it. -- Esurnir 06:23, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Biblical Reference[edit]

Mark 8:22–26 ..... really? Reading the passage, it seems like something much more naive than describing a visual system anomoly :) -- (talk) 10:58, 19 December 2008 (UTC)


Reisen later did experiments with kittens wearing frosted goggels to allow them to see diffused light so that the retina did not degenerate and got the same results.

Dates and ages[edit]

I have some difficulty with the years and ages in the part about Michael May. He is described as being born in 1954 and regaining partial vision in 2000, at age 46 (that seems mathematically correct and in accordance to the page on him). But in the next sentence it says that he had a stem cell transplant in 2001, at age 43, after 40 years of blindness. That can't be right. I have a suspicion that the intended meaning is "at age 46, after 43 years of blindness", as that is at least plausible, date-wise. EwgB (talk) 17:28, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Virgil and Shirl[edit]

Are Virgil and Shirl Jennings the same person? I've seen conflicting information about this. The article for Shirl states he was chronicled in "To See and Not See" but the name Virgil is used throughout. Olinga (talk) 12:22, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
