I read a story not too long ago in the New Yorker about a man who was almost totally blind but due to his fiance's urging (I'm serious!) he got some procedure to restore most of his site. It was a disaster; his depth perception was nonexistent--he just didn't understand how to live sighted since he'd never been sighted. He had trouble doing things like eating because he could never gauge how far away his utensils were from the plate. It was an interesting story.

Later made into a Val Kilmer flick!

Girlfriend, I thought the exact same thing! YOMANK!
