“British eye surgeon will carry out the country’s first transplant using an artificial cornea”

A top British eye surgeon is planning to perform the UK’s first transplant using an artificial cornea.

Sheraz Daya has said he will carry out the complex operation within a year – pending approval from British and EU authorities.

The artificial cornea will be made from lab-grown collagen, tissue that is naturally found in the human body.
