A blinded man has seen his wife for the first time after surgeons gave him back his sight using one of his teeth.

Martin Jones' canine was pulled out so a tiny optical lens could be fitted to it, then the tooth was inserted in his eye socket.

The 42-year-old lost his left eye and was totally blinded in the right 12 years ago when a tub of molten aluminium exploded in his face at the scrapyard where he worked.

He fell in love with care worker Gill, 50, and the pair married four years ago and settled down in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

But he had never dreamt he would be able to see what she looks like.

Then he heard about these amazing operations performed by surgeon Christopher Lui and his team in Brighton, East Sussex.

He said when the bandages came off the first person he wanted to see was Gill.

"The doctors took the bandages off and it was like looking through water.

"Then I saw this figure and it was her, it was unbelieveable," Mr Jones told The Sun newspaper.

The tooth was implanted in his cheek for three months to grow blood vessels and new tissue.

Once it was moved into his eye it was under two weeks until Mr Jones could see.

"When I tell friends I see through my tooth they don't believe me.

"But then I take off my glasses - and my eye looks like something from a sci-fi movie," Mr Jones told The Sun.

They didn't include the whole quote. What he really said is: "Then I saw this figure and it was her, it was unbelieveable. She told me she was 25!"

Sadly, the doctors went a little too far...

good for that guy, and buckets of shivering creepy for the rest of us. Everybody wins.

I wonder if I might rather be blind in his shoes. I hope to never find out.
