50 years ago, scientists tried to transplant part of a human eye
After an attempted cornea transplant failed, ophthalmologists in Houston, Tex., tried a more daring experiment to restore the vision of 54-year-old John Madden…. They transplanted an entire eye from a donor who had died of a brain tumor.… [Later, the doctor who did the surgery] announced that only the front part of the donor’s eye had been transplanted; the back portion of Madden’s eye, including the optic nerve and part of the retina, had been preserved
