The surgery had the unexpected benefit of returning his sight.Hine covers the broad spectrum of sensation and emotion that resulted. He describes how fac [...]

    2. Professor Robert V. Hine lost his eyesight to cataracts and was blind for fifteen years. After surgery to remove the cataract from one eye, Hine regained vision and was reintroduced to the world of the sighted. This story and Hine's reactions to his changing circumstances are detailed in Second Sight, a sometimes touching, sometimes funny memoir.I say "sometimes" because sometimes it's a little dry. It's never forced, though, nor does Hine pull any punches when discussing what it was like for hi [...]

    3. The author explores both the personal and scholarly aspects to the loss (and regaining) of his sight. I thought it was interesting, if at times a little dry.
