 20-min Revolutionary Op for Ageing Eyes
Restoring near-perfect vision for age-related problems, in a 20 minute operation, has been developed by scientists.

The 20-minute operation involves implanting an artificial lens into the eye and its effects are instant and permanent, reports The Daily Express.

Consultant ophthalmologist Oliver Backhouse, who is spearheading the technique, said: "This lens is amazing.

"Anyone over 45 who has sight deterioration should consider this if they want to have surgery to restore their sight."

Backhouse, who works at the Yorkshire Eye Hospital and Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, added: "This procedure has many advantages over other vision correction treatments including laser eye surgery.

"It has taken us by surprise how outstandingly good the results are."
