Re: The registering Question.....

it is not as rare as many think, I had a transplant in my then worse eye n got registered as blind not long after and as a result of disasterous experiences I flat out refused a transplant for my left eye which now has no useful vision at all n the then transplanted eye is as good as useless as well...
