Joseph Lewis, 26, passed his driving test just seven weeks after a complicated operation to prevent him from a lifetime of blindness and enabled him to see. He had suffered with poor vision his whole life and had developed cataracts six months ago, forcing him to lose the little sight he had.
The life-changing operation removed the cataracts and replaced his natural lenses with artificial ones which have been surgically implanted into his eyes and work in the same way as the most advanced lenses in a pair of glasses.
Lewis had always wanted to be able to drive but it seemed impossible for him to do so but this operation has now enabled to him to drive.
