There was no fanfare, there were no celebrations.

But, shortly after midday in the corridors of Moorfields Eye Hospital in London, a little bit of history was made.

ITV News was given exclusive access as NHS patient, Steve Verze, emerged from the clinic as the first person in the world to have a 3D-printed eye.

Steve, an engineer in his 40s, lost his left eye when he was a child and has needed a prosthetic replacement since he was 20.

I was looking forward to close-up video, so I could hear the 'pop' when they fit the eye.

Maybe I'm strange, I dunno. :w00t:
