Woman has a special eye – level 2, A12
A woman suffers from a bad illness which makes her blind.
But a team of researchers in Australia has designed and built an eye for her. The eye is seen as a major step forward in restoring some vision to the blind.
With the new eye the woman will be able to see things like shapes and corners of the houses.
The team have signed up two more volunteers for the operation. They hope their research could improve the lives of millions of blind people across the world.
You can watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Interesting words: suffer from (have a lot difficulty or pain because of something), restore (return), vision (ability to see).
