Cornwall gets a pioneering piece of equipment to give people their sight back.

Probus Surgical Centre is the first in the UK to have the new treatment system for cataracts.

It includes a state of the art auto-refractor which can scan the eye in seconds.

There is also a new machine which means that new lenses can be inserted in a less invasive way, meaning recovery is much quicker.

Senior Surgical Manager Mike Morgan said: "Probably one of the most rewarding things you can do as a nurse is to take that eye patch off in a morning and say 'How does that feel?' and it's just so wonderful. It's seeing that nice clear smile on your grandchildren which you may not have seen for some time.

"Ask anybody who has bad sight what it's like and then ask them afterwards, when they can see the world again. It's amazing."
