25 years without sight and this is the first thing he did when he got it back.

Today’s Good News post is brought to you by Vaalia.

For the next four weeks we’ll be bringing you a little dose of good news. Sometimes when we turn on the TV, radio or open a newspaper, it feels like everything in the world is just sad and wrong. But there are pockets of delight and happiness, which we’ll be uncovering and bringing to you.

For the past 25 years, Alden Hiltunen has been losing his eyesight.

However, thanks to the advancement in all things medical, two months ago, the 79-year-old got the chance to see again. At the University of Michigan Kellog Eye Centre, Hiltunen had a telescopic lens implanted in one of his eyes.

While things are still a little blurry, the surgery has allowed him to recognise facial details, to read and to write.

So what did Hiltunen do with his new lease on life?

Write his wife a love note.


Because he hadn’t been able to for many, many years.

When she read the note, she reportedly cried.

If that doesn’t make you believe in endless love, then nothing will.
