Basically they put a new lens in my eye and gave me perfect eyesight. It’s an amazing experience. You can read about it here

The eye procedure I had done was very similar to a cataract operation. For me it has meant freedom from glasses, for many it means freedom from blindness!

Cataract is the world’s leading cause of blindness with around 18 million people blind as a result.In the developed world, cataract is a problem faced by the elderly but in poorer countries the condition is also common in children.Straightforward surgery can give sight to a child blinded by cataract, giving them a much brighter future. It costs just £50.
