Berkshire man with rare eye disease in drug dispute

A Berkshire man with a rare eye disease could be left blind because of a dispute over which drug is used to treat his condition.

Tony Watson, 69, is blind in one eye and wants the drug Lucentis to save the sight in his other eye.

However, the local primary care trust (PCT) has refused to fund the drug and offered a cheaper alternative.

His case has been taken up by the RNIB.
