Sometimes the gift of sight is taken for granted. For instance, how would you describe a person who can’t see the color red? How are you going to describe flowers, sky or ocean? There’s some hope, though.
If they qualify for eye surgery, some people with blindness can recover their sight.
Even better, people are not the only ones who can recover their sight–animals can do it! One lucky Irish Terrier got his sight back and his ecstatic reaction says it all!
Duffy, a lovely Irish Terrier and rescue dog, had a lot of health struggles. He developed diabetes and lost his eyesight because of the disease at one point. His diabetes stabilized with medication, but without his sight, Duffy wasn’t the same.
I can only imagine how he must have felt, from one day seeing his beloved family, not seeing anything at all, let alone their faces.
Fortunately, Duffy was qualified for an eye surgery to restore his sight. For this very good boy, it was great news. The family of Duffy did not hesitate to sign up for surgery with Duffy. His treatment and surgery was performed at Malvern, Pennsylvania’s Veterinary Referral Center.
The following video shows Duffy coming out of surgery and seeing his parents in months for the first time.
As Duffy’s tail wags a thousand miles an hour, you can see how happy and excited he is for the first time in months to see his family again.
In fact, he is so excited that he even begins to make small, high-pitched screams–his own way of showing joyful tears. Seeing is really so warm-up and touching.
Dr. Kevin Kumrow was the veterinarian who regulated the diabetes of Duffy and Dr. Brady Beale was operating on him once he was stable for surgery.
The two doctors together gave this dog another chance to live a happy and fulfilled life, and a more deserving pup couldn’t have happened. Look bellow at the beautiful scene!
