Model gets sight back

7th February 2012

Katie Piper, the model who had acid thrown in her face and lost the sight in one eye, has undergone an operation to give her her sight back.

She had stem cell treatment at the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead. In a Channel 4 documentary she said: ''I can see silhouettes, I can judge depth, I can see movement, I can see shapes - if someone holds their hand up I can see how many fingers they are holding up. I would say the most significant thing about restoring my sight is I can be more independent if I have operations on my good eye."
