WASHINGTON, July 18 (UPI) -- A dog stricken blind by diabetes underwent surgery and was filmed reuniting with his owners and seeing their faces for the first time in months.

Benjamin May said Duffy the 8-year-old Irish terrier went blind after contracting diabetes, but the canine was eligible for surgery to restore his sight after medication brought the diabetes under control.
