A woman can see and function again. She has reclaimed her life thanks to a printer. Really, a printer.

A 22-year-old woman whose skull was thickening, suffered from headaches, lost her vision and her sense of coordination from the thickening skull. In a 23-hour surgery she received a new skull created from a 3-D printer. The new skull is a perfect fit. She has recovered from her symptoms and is a living miracle of modern times. 

The marriage between unlimited imagination and science continues to improve and redeem our lives.
