Woman Speaks Out About Regaining Sight After Hitting Head on Coffee Table

A woman who miraculously regained her sight after 13 years has spoken out about the experience.

Lisa Reid, from New Zealand, lost her sight when she was 11 years old due to a tumour pressing down on her optic nerve.

One night, 13 years later, she apparently knelt down to kiss her guide dog Ami goodnight and hit her head on a coffee table. She went to bed only to wake up the next morning able to see again.

The now 38-year-old has shared her story with the Daily Mail Australia to raise awareness about Blind Week.

She explained: “Nobody knows what happened or can explain it. I can’t really find words to describe how it felt-amazing, fantastic.

“You can imagine not being able to see and then you can, you can’t really describe that. To see the world again visually is a gift.”
