Central Islip woman talks about vision-saving surgeries

Shantese Wilkinson of Central Islip thought she just had bad vision, but her doctors found a pituitary tumor pressing on her optic nerves -- a problem that would have caused blindness. After two surgeries -- in which a 3-D, high definition endoscope was used -- her vision has been repaired, and she's now working an assistant conductor for the Long Island Rail Road.
