With some help from The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, a Brooklyn mother has regained her sight through surgery and was able to see her two-year-old daughter for the first time, WPIX reports.

Cassy Rivera lost her sight two years ago while giving birth to her daughter because of a rare eye disease. She is scheduled for another operation to restore sight to her other eye after the holidays.
