Sky News has just highlighted the work of eye surgeons and their students using an ‘eye simulator’ so they may learn how to perform delicate and complex surgery with relative ease.

Reporter, Thomas Moore, referred to cataract surgery - which, I suggest with the greatest of respect - is now quite common. It will be wonderful to see how much more these pioneer surgeons will be able to achieve with conditions like macular degeneration and total transplants.

Whatever they do now and in the future, they have my unreserved and  humble admiration.

Sky reported: ‘Eye surgeons have unveiled a new simulator that allows them to practice operations without putting patients at risk. Up to now trainees have only been able to perfect their skills in real life situations’.
