The corneas of the late Meir Dagan, the former head of the Mossad who died last month of cancer, were given to a 70-year-old woman from Tel Aviv and an 81-year-old man at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center on Tuesday.

Dagan was registered as a potential organ donor with ADI of the Israel Transplant Center. The man said soon after the operation that he was able to read and see for the first time in a long period.
