Schoolboy given goggles to regain sight

Charlie Mason can see better than he has for years thanks to new technology.

The goggles use a digital device to magnify what’s in front of the wearer to a massive degree, and work so well that his school are paying for them so he can improve his education.

Charlie, now eight, started losing his sight at four years and has only been able to see things close up until now.
