Update on Keer Deng

This is an update on Keer Deng’s eyes and vision. As I posted earlier, Keer is the young man who was blinded in Sudan. Keer underwent a corneal transplant in his right eye. He left eye was destroyed and is incapable of any vision. Up until last week, Keer was only able to tell night from day and make out some shapes. Today, Keer was able to see his teeth when brushing for the first time since childhood. He can also see the food on his plate and identify colors and shapes. A long healing period lies ahead for Keer. I expect his vision to improve in the months to come. Keer’s positive outlook on life has been an inspiration for all who have been privileged to meet him including me.
