Re: So they've "solvedcd" a problem that does not really exist?

I didn't say the problem was rejection.Most such surgery goes well as the work of Fred Hollows* showed. But there's a small but significant proportion of cases which don't go well and there mostly the result of the eye not adapting well to something it didn't evolve to contain.

*I'm not sure how well Hollows is known outside of Australia, but if you haven't heard of him look him up. Edit:I see you have heard of him.
