Tiny telescope helps restore sight in Manchester hospital

A hospital in Manchester has become the first NHS hospital in the UK to offer a new treatment using a tiny telescope to restore sight.

Manchester Royal Eye Hospital is offering some patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) an operation to implant the mini telescope in their eye.

Pearl Halliday described how the condition affects her and surgeon Felipe Dhawahir-Scala explains how the treatment works.
