Head-butt by horse restores man’s sight

`A second World War veteran who was blinded in his right eye when he was hit by shrapnel can see again after being head-butted by a pedigree racehorse.

Doctors tried in vain for 64 years to restore Don Karkos’s sight, until My Buddy Chimo stepped in. [..]

“Being kicked is part of the job, but I’ve never been hit that hard.

“I was pretty shaken up, kind of dazed. Then, later that night, I started to get the vision back in my right eye.

“It was unbelievable. I’ve been seeing doctors all my life, and they’ve always told me there is nothing can be done.”‘
