For many people getting older brings a catalogue of vision problems which make everyday tasks like reading and driving a major challenge.
But a new lens implant which mimics the working of a youthful eye is giving sight back to people struggling with cataracts, astigmatism, or long and short-sightedness.
It is the first lens that corrects for all types of vision problems at once and can be inserted in just a simple operation. It works at any distance and in any light condition, acting more like a camera zoom than other multi-focal lenses which have three distinct points of focus.
Susan Wright, 57, a charity consultant from Macclesfield, Cheshire, is one of the first people in the world to test the new implant.
She had surgery on both eyes six weeks ago and had her final follow-up appointment with ophthalmic surgeon, Brian Little, at the London Claremont Clinic last week
