Having read this article it would seem that this gentleman now has the same level of residual vision as I do. The headline makes it sound fabulous. In reality though, I find this level of vision is often distracting as these random patches of light and shade are difficult to interpret.
I do wish the press would stop sensationalising this type of thing. Its almost as though any glimmer is hope in the extreme, taking us out of our prison of perpetual darkness.
