 Corneal Transplant Man Becomes 'Spic and Span' Chief With Cleanliness OCD

A quirky, and maybe even feminine, obsession for cleanliness - that was what a man was blessed with after he underwent an eye operation.

Palmer had developed a corneal disease, which blurred his vision.

Following the cornea transplant in March this year, the 46-year-old Will Palmer can't stand a speck of dust. He now dusts and washes and hates grime like never before.

The Telegraph quoted Palmer as saying: "Since having the transplant my vision is almost 20/20. I've can now notice every speck of dust and dirt and can't help but have a go at cleaning it up as I go along.

"Before my vision started to deteriorate my partner had to pester me into doing my bit around the house. Sarah always said I never did enough washing up and hoovering, but now I'm always at it.

"For some reason seeing the grime gets right on my nerves and I have to do something about it. It started as a joke that I must have been given the cornea of a woman but I really do think it's true.

"There's a reason why men don't clean like this and I think it's because we just don't see the dirt, but I see it everywhere I go."
